Residencia para espías

Jesús Franco Spain, 1966

ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film Residence for Spies

A slipshod first half but the second half picks up nicely. Franco experiments with lens filters (making 'Stamboul look like Tony Scott territory at times) and unexpected POV-shots and creates an odd mix of low humour, donwbeat romance and exciting mortal combat. Not as solid or as wacky as ATTACK OF THE ROBOTS but a minor treat for Franco-philes nonetheless.
