Movie Info

In this French farce, naive Francois is mistakenly dubbed a spy as the result of interior spats in the French Secret Service. Unwittingly the target of assassins and chief Toulouse's plot to trap another agent, Francois continues to muddle through his otherwise unremarkable life as it falls apart before him.

Critic Reviews for Le Grand Blond avec Une Chaussure Noire (The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Just about as witty and well-turned as its title.

March 18, 2020 | Full Review…

Well, it isn't comedy of the highest order, but most of it is thoroughly winning.

May 9, 2005 | Full Review…

Tall Blond Man is just too relaxed, too confident of its own cool; comedy has to take more risks than this one does.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Meagerly amusing, if thanks to several scenarios genuinely funny in their brevity, The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe is worth a look, but like several of its scenarios, the mere idea of its existence is more entertaining than the actuality.

October 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

... takes an idea out of Hitchcock's North by Northwest-an innocent man is mistaken for a government agent and targeted by the enemy-and gives it cynical twist and a comic treatment closer to the Pink Panther films.
