Directed by Philippe de Broca
France & Italy, 1973, 1h 35min
Belmondo reteams with THAT MAN FROM RIO director Philippe de Broca in this multifaceted comedy about a pulp fiction writer who can barely
eke out a living, whose love life is a mess and who fantasizes endlessly about the adventures of reckless spy Bob Sinclair, the hero of his
dime novels. The film careens between the mundane life of the novelist and the jet-setting adventures of the imaginary spy, with very witty
and revealing results. With Jacqueline Bisset as the woman “both” men are striving to impress.
