This is a story without innocents. A maniacal informant creates his own phantom secret-police department. He recruits a group of intellectuals to spy on each other and uses his secret archive to wreak havoc on the government. Secret policing reveals its dark nature not only in its nauseating cruelties, but in its deviant pleasures. –TIFF

As Billy Wilder said : "If you're going to tell people the truth, be funny or they'll kill you." This movie is very funny!
