As a followup to his very successful shocker DIABOLIQUE (1955), director Clouzot assembled an international cast for this somewhat plodding espionage film. Sety stars as the director of a failing mental clinic who gets involved in international intrigue when an American agent (Jaffe)

offers him a tidy sum to hide a German physicist (Jurgens). Sety accepts the offer and soon finds himself caught in a dangerous game as spies from around the world, including a Russian agent played by Ustinov, plot to capture the physicist. Fine performances are provided by the entire cast, but

the film never succeeds in building the needed tension.
