Agent trouble is a 1987 French film directed by Jean-Pierre Mocky and starring Catherine Deneuve. It is based on the novel The Man Who Loved Zoos by Malcolm Bosse. The film won the César Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and was nominated for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Music.
Amanda Weber is a museum employee. Her nephew, Victorien, who feels that wild animals should not be kept in zoos, has been murdered, and she seeks to find out why and how. She knows that Victorien was witness to a mysterious government project where 50 tourists were killed by an unknown poison gas, and the bus they were travelling in was found at the bottom of a lake. Alex, a callous government assassin who is having marital problems with his wife Delphine, has orders to kill anyone who knows about the cover-up of that project, and Amanda soon becomes his target.
The CD soundtrack composed by Gabriel Yared is available on Music Box Records label (website).
