After scientist Dr Whitaker (Guy Delorme) is kidnapped, and his
fiancée Géraldine (Gaia Germani) is accompanied to Paris by someone
posing as Lemmy Caution, the real Lemmy Caution, the hard-drinking,
hard-hitting FBI-agent is sent to Paris as well, to get the good Doctor
And while it looks as if he is only interested in always habving enough
Whisky within arm's reach, actually Lemmy has figured everything out right
from the beginning: The girl who flirted with him in the airplane to
France, Carletta (Christiane Minazzoli) is the girlfriend of Prazetti
(Philippe Lemaire), the man behind the kidnapping who is posing as Lemmy's
Paris contact (but not for long), and who besides Carletta has an affair
with Montana (Elga Andersen) - but Lemmy of course knows that as well.
Only Whitaker's fiancée Géraldine seems to not see through any of
this and thinks Lemmy to be one of the kidnappers, actually sabotages some
of his plans ... and so, Lemmy, who has figured everything out long ago,
is left with any concrete evidence, and thus has to convince his boss in
Roquevert) to pay the ransom the kidnappers ask for.
But of course, he has the case with the money bugged and can actually
listen in on the kidnappers ... and it turns out that Doc Whitaker himself
is their leader, he never was the scientist everybody thought him to be
but a fraud who was only after the ransom money.
In the kitchen of a bakery, Lemmy can fight and defeat the villains
using just his fists, and present them to the police, while he - naturally
- gets the girl, Whitaker's fiancée Géraldine that is, who was not one
of the baddies but a British secret service agent ...
The eighth Lemmy Caution film, and the last of the
classic era (Alphaville from
1965 was next), is another fun entry into the series, weak on
comprehensible plot as usual but high on ghenre parody, intentionally
silly dialogue and oneliners and enjoyably unbelievable plot twists. And
it has of course its lead Eddie Constantine asking for Whisky in every
other scene, no matter how out of place this question might be.
