(out of 5)
Positively weird European spy comedy featuring Irène Jacob and Bill Pullman as intelligence operatives who are also lovers, their hot-and-cold relationship constantly getting in the way of doing their job well even in life-threatening situations. The film is completely unremarkable, but passes your time easily and has a charmingly diverting plot about the usual things this genre has to offer: stolen documents falling into enemy hands, red herring villains abounding everywhere, exotic locales (in this case, Northern Europe). Special ingredients include the oddest usage for a UPS code ever seen on film. European-made but filmed in English, this one was originally called History Is Made At Night when it traveled the film festival circuit.
