An obscure spy movie
4 April 2003 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I wasn't aware that this movie existed until Channel 5 screened it one afternoon recently, so I set the video and taped it and was pleased I did.

Robin Hood actor Richard Greene is an agent whose brother is murdered on the Spanish-French border and he goes out there to look for the killers. While in the process, he meets a woman played by singer Anouk Aimee and she helps him and, not surprisingly, they fall in love with each other. They come across a smuggling ring and it seems they killed his brother.

This movie is beautifully shot in colour, despite the low budget. This surprised me.

The scenes that were shot on location in Dover were very impressive. This gave you an idea what life was like in the 1950's

I rather enjoyed this movie and is worth watching if you get the chance, as it is rather obscure.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
