Peau d'Espion (1967, FRA/GER/ITA) C-84m. ** D: Eduard Molinaro. Starring Louis Jourdan, Senta Berger, Edmond O'Brien, Maurice Garrel, Bernard Blier, Anna Gael, Paul Muller. Berger's attraction to independent novelist Jourdan leads to his involvement with her husband, a newspaper editor, who wants to take the man to Heidelberg with a scientist. The characters' intentions remain a mystery for a long time in this drama about espionage, but that's also what keeps you watching in a way. After an hour film runs out of steam. Based on the novel by Jacques Robert. English title: TO COMMIT A MURDER.
