Les espions / The Spies (1957) DVD9
The film was based on Midnight Patient, a novel by Egon Hostowsky and focuses on a rundown, faltering psychiatric clinic. There the psychiatrist owner, desperate for money to keep his practice running, is offered a large sum of money by a spy to hide a mysterious person as a new patient in his clinic in return for a million francs.
The hidden renegade is an atom scientist who claims to have invented a nuclear explosive device. The hospital is taken over by suspicious and secretive characters, all apparently spies from both East and West trying to find out who and exactly what the new "patient" is. The psychiatrist's sanity starts to collapse as he submitted to surveillance and deception.
