The French comedy thriller ‘Le Grand Blond avec Une Chaussure Noire’ (Follow That Guy with the One Black Shoe) directed by Yves Robert will be screened at 3 pm on Tuesday, October 5 and at 6.30 pm on Wednesday, October 6 at Alliance Francaise de Colombo.
Directed by Yves Robert, the film revolves around a secret service chief who is so determined that his assistant Milan should not have his job that he arranges for him investigate a ‘nobody’ picked out from the crowd at Orly airport.
The chief of the French secret service, Louis Toulouse, is more preoccupied with fending off his rival, Milan, than with the machinations of enemy agents. Determined to rid himself of his rival, he devises an ingenious plan, which involves sending him after a man randomly chosen in a crowd of people.
The man, Milan is informed, is a dangerous spy, who must be apprehended at all costs. In reality, he is François Perrin, a harmless, bumbling musician. Perrin’s ineptitude convinces Milan that he is indeed a clever and dangerous secret agent.
Suitable for persons of 15 years and over, this 1972 film in French is subtitled with English subtitles
