Imagine, one day, finding that you can walk through walls!

Lodging in his disliked brother-in-law’s Paris flat, Leon Diddier discovers that he can walk through walls.

Despite his new-found talent, Leon finds nothing that interests him; until one night when he espies a female British cat-burglar at work.

Leon falls in love with the young lady and attempts to make her ‘go straight’.

Reviews

(1)

Well-observed although strangely flat and disappointing sex comedy, something of a pioneer in its time and therefore perhaps too diffident in its approach. (Halliwell’s)
