Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This crime melodrama features a dramatic performance by singer Charles Aznavour. In the film, he plays a doctor whose summer home is invaded by two violent criminals. They hold his wife and daughter hostage while the doctor is forced to clean out his bank account to pay for their ransom. In a variety of ways the criminals torment the doctor and his family until his patience is completely exhausted. This movie shows once again that it is not wise to push mild-mannered men beyond the limit of their patience.
