Plot and style

Dossier 51 wwwchaosreignsfrwordpresswpcontentuploads20

Intelligence service (though this is never made clear) attempts to coerce a French diplomat into working for them. Their reports build main line of film.

The book resembles a dossier (file) containing notes, memos, wiretap transcripts, expense reports and interoffice correspondence (including administrative details, even some bickering) written in various personal styles. Every department in the organization is identified by a Greek or Roman god: Jupiter, Mercury, Esculape, Mars, etc. The targets of their investigations have their names replaced by numbers: 51 for the target, 52 for his wife, and so on, further dehumanizing the proceedings.
