Movie Info

Desperate to protect his job from a bureaucratic rival, the head of the French secret service (Jean Rochefort) picks outs a stranger, François Perrin (Pierre Richard), from a Paris crowd and singles him out as a master spy who should be tracked very closely. In reality, François is an amiable, if clumsy, classical violinist whose complete obliviousness to the agents watching him only further convinces them that they have a major undercover operative in their sights.

Critic Reviews for Le Grand Blond avec Une Chaussure Noire (The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • Just about as witty and well-turned as its title.

    March 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Well, it isn't comedy of the highest order, but most of it is thoroughly winning.

    May 9, 2005 | Full Review…
  • Tall Blond Man is just too relaxed, too confident of its own cool; comedy has to take more risks than this one does.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Meagerly amusing, if thanks to several scenarios genuinely funny in their brevity, The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe is worth a look, but like several of its scenarios, the mere idea of its existence is more entertaining than the actuality.

    October 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • ... takes an idea out of Hitchcock's North by Northwest-an innocent man is mistaken for a government agent and targeted by the enemy-and gives it cynical twist and a comic treatment closer to the Pink Panther films.
