Time Out says

Glossy style conflicts with content (political intrigue expanding on the known facts of the Ben Barka affair) as Boisset indicts the CIA, the media, the law, and the French political system in a tale of an all-out conspiracy to rid France of an exiled socialist who is planning to return to his own country to set up a revolutionary government, and who becomes an embarrassment to the establishment. Strong performances from an excellent cast, Morricone's music, and a script by Jorge Semprun - who wrote Costa-Gavras' Z - make it a polished entertainment rather than a truly political film.
