Pretty dull, it has to be said
2 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think the early 1950s was an interesting time for British cinema. Hitchcock was making forgotten but intriguing efforts like STAGE FRIGHT while once in a while equally forgotten gems like DOUBLE CONFESSION seem to come along out of nowhere. Sadly THERE IS ANOTHER SUN, a morality tale centred around a big top circus, has little redeeming value for the modern viewer.

The best thing about it is that it paints a picture of the era, while the morals of the picture are fun to watch. The cast, including Laurence Harvey and Leslie Dwyer, give performances that can only be described as professional. A shame, then, that the story of a love triangle between a woman and two men and the subsequent small-scale crime just don't go anywhere. There's a plodding detective sub-plot and lots of worthiness, but the film just didn't hold my attention. That THERE IS ANOTHER SUN is so dull comes as a surprise when you consider director Lewis Gilbert went on to direct Bond classics like THE SPY WHO LOVED ME.
