Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Le Complot is based on a true spy story of double-, triple- and quadruple-cross. The plot is galvanized by Charles DeGaulle's decision to pull French troops out of Algeria. The central characters include a group of pro-Gaullists, a gang of left-wing insurgents, and the police. It all sounds a great deal like The Battle of Algiers, but there are enough nuances to sustain the suspense. The film's 120 minutes hold up well--though you may not get all 120 minutes on commercial TV, due to the film's "R" rating. Complot is also known by the English-language title The Conspiracy.
