Losey captures with comedy the same chill of modernity beneath the Mediterranean sun that Antonioni captures with melodrama.
Not merely a spy spoof, based on a book and a comic strip about a femme James Bond type, the colorful production gives the horse laugh to many different film plots and styles.
under the non-stop stream of jokes lies a bitter edge of malice, directed not only against the genre itself but against a society which trusts its politicians and its generals.
Too much of it is just foolish, labored and sometimes painful camp.
Joseph Losey didn't really do frivolous. Which is probably why his attempt at spoofy pseudo-Bondery is so direly unfunny.
At a running time of just under two full hours, the boredom becomes as exaggerated as the wallpaper.
I waited 20 years to see this movie, and boy was I let down! Terence Stamp was cool, though.
One of my least favourite spy movies. It's more about the whole mod female spy fashion and coolness, and focuses less on plot, characters, and anything else. I didn't care for it.
So very camp. Great actors, fine director and lovely sets can't save a bad script. There are only two reasons to watch this film: 1) the fashions modeled by Vitti, and 2) die-hard fans of Dirk Bogarde or Terence Stamp.
