This departs from the original movie version (but, if I remember well, from the novel too) in the second half, I don't know if for the better, but surely that gives a more noirish slant to the story. Visually this reads like a series of tv commercials, with the director proving to be a female naked feet fetishist. But the plot devised by Rossi I have the impression here is not as thrilling as in the original movie version because the director is too interested in devising visuals that in keeping the pace adequate to a thrilling story. I can't be sure about that having watched the original just before this one, but even the choice of, for example, showing the restroom attack deprives the story of tension. Same for the meeting with the italian after the discovery of the corpse (the scene in the garage in the Litvak's version was one of the highlights of that movie). The actors, well, the girl is young (yeah): nothing remarkable about her (but the same went for Eggar). Germano: how this guy got into the business? He's ugly and makes me regret even McEnery. The music is unremarkable (but same went with Legrand's). 6-7/10

Oh, I forgot. The story is set in the '90's, to justify the use of the typewriter and of the Citizen's Band (I don't know if this is still in use).
