In this marvelously surreal 60s Euro oddity - part Dr. Strangelove, part Alphaville - the unforgettable Emilfork (The City of Lost Children) stars as crazed scientist Herbert Von Krantz, who’s invented a device to sterilize all nuclear weapons called “The Annulator.” A herd of rival spies are desperate to get their hands on the device, including French singer Gainsbourg as the leader of a sect of bald, turtleneck-wearing assassins.
