This is the film-debut of celebrated writer/director Claude Lelouch. A sex fiend who preys on little girls has escaped from prison. As another man drives through the countryside, he hears the news on his car radio. The man is followed by a mysterious car, and the viewer is not sure if the man is in fact the child molester or an innocent stranger. A young girl is picked up hitchhiking by the man as police search for the escaped pervert. In keeping with the idiosyncrasies of other Lelouch features, the film contains various plot twists and gives the appearance that things are not as they seem.

The performances are self conscious and the cut price handling shows but it retains attention for showing it',s director to be a co-conspirator with the Nouvelle Vague, complete with sustained car driving shots and a departure from conventional film form. Token plot concerns the police search for an escaped crazy.It is not hard to see the director of Chat et Le Souris, Rendez Vous and Il y a des jours... et des lunes at work here.
