Crosses, double-crosses and triple-crosses abound in Les Suspects. The plot concerns an imminent Arab uprising in Algeria. The government of France sends one of its most trusted operatives to investigate, but it soon becomes obvious that no one can be trusted. In 1957, Les Suspects had the advantage of topicality; viewers' reaction to it today will be contingent upon one's sentiments towards the European colonization of Africa. The impressive cast is headed by Charles Vanel as a man intimately involved in the uprising's outcome (and it isn't until the end of the film that the viewer is aware how involved).
