This pitch-black comedy of Cold War intrigue takes place in a small provincial sanitarium, where a bewildered doctor is plunged into an atmosphere of spiralling paranoia as his tiny clinic is invaded by an army of spies and counter-spies.

I would call this a comedy-thriller. A man gets over his head when he agrees to admit a special patient to his clinic. All hell breaks loose, and he tries to do the right thing. Great performances from the whole cast, and the ending ties it up nicely.
Avec un scénario plutôt fort complexe qui mélange avec brio le thriller, l'espionnage et le fantastique, ce film mérite une totale réhabilitation après son cuisant échec commercial lors de sa sortie en octobre 1957. A voir absolument... www.cinefiches.com
