Pesestrian almost plot less thriller
23 February 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film gives the impression that the writers had not completed the script before the film began.We are told very little of what is actually going on.It is a bit of a mystery why Trevor Howard goes off the ferry to find out what happened to his drugged friend.Richard O Sullivan is allowed to wander around Venice on his own and by chance meets up with Eduardo Cianelli who has drugged his dad.Then to pile coincidence upon unbelievable coincidence he doesn't recognise his dad in the hospital.Then all of a sudden from nowhere comes Richard Baseheart and becomes involved in the rescue attempt.Richard O Sullivan at the beginning of his career looks rather nervous and uneasy in front of the camera.All in all a real clinker.Not worth viewing apart from the marvellous views of Venice which makes me want to visit the city.
