Movie Info

In this French farce, naive Francois is mistakenly dubbed a spy as the result of interior spats in the French Secret Service. Unwittingly the target of assassins and chief Toulouse's plot to trap another agent, Francois continues to muddle through his otherwise unremarkable life as it falls apart before him.

... 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.

There is an american remake under another name but I forget what it is :( In any case this is much better.

Richard Haller
Richard Haller

a randomly-chosen musician survives an intelligence agency feud in which he is a patsy. the physical comedy is as acute as chaplin.
