| I'll file this with my giallo films
Most enjoyable oddity. This starts off as a cracking giallo and probably continues as such beyond halfway when it begins to turn into a Euro spy film. So far, so good but finally it goes to far with its Bond parody and the final segment is pretty laughable and rather spoils the taste of the bulk of the film. Carole Bouquet gives a great performance, she who starred in Bunuel's last film when she was 20 (her first movie) and amongst many others, 'For Your Eyes Only', only a couple of years before. This may be the reason this was given the alternative title for mine is 'Mystere'. It is such a shame that this veers away from the giallo genre but I guess it was a rather late entry although Carlo Vanzini would go on to have another decent stab, as you might say, with 'Nothing Underneath'. I reckon I'll file this with my giallo films and when watching it again just maybe miss off the Hong Kong set, 'Epilogue'. Score reflects the disappointing denouement.
