Stereotyped and predictable, this is a feeble romantic adventure story about Laura (Miou-Miou), her estranged husband Tournier (Robin Renucci), her erstwhile lover-to-be Tom (Alain Souchon), and the arms dealer they are out to foil (François Perrot). Laura and Tournier are in southern Morocco conspiring to put a lid on the arms deal that is about to go through with a hostile Arab nation, and then they meet Tom, the owner of a transport service and pilot of the "Sphinx," his biplane. Tom becomes an accomplice in their plot, and before long he and Laura are romantically involved -- though not convincingly. The tepid romance is matched by tepid action scenes and a predictable ending.
