A super-secret faction of the French Police have been assigned to protect a visiting ambassador from Turkey, as well as his wife and daughter. It seems that the Turkish delegate is in Paris to sign a deal for a new jet aircraft that will be used in a war, and a Vast Criminal Organization is out to stop the deal at any cost. Enter Hanin, a bovine, chain-smoking hero, who inserts himself into the action with a series of brutal, violent fistfights which usually leave him bloodied but nearly always the winner. And when he’s not fighting off hordes of enemy agents, he finds time to romance the lovely Mehlica, the daughter of the Turkish ambassador.


 With touches of the bizarre -- a sinister blonde, a fey villain, killers meeting in a flooded house, and brutal battles set in a deserted junkyard, Code Name: Tiger reveals the deft directorial touches of the esteemed CLAUDE CHABROL (The Butcher) who dabbled in a number of Euro espionage flicks during the early Sixties before settling in to cult director status with a whole new form of socio-political cinema in France dubbed "The New Wave."
