NOT much Changes
22 January 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Jack Hawkins plays the news editor of a daily paper and Elizabeth Allen his wife.He refuses to go away on a planned holiday.However he is really feeling a bit insecure in his job feeling that one of his deputies Derek Farr,is after it.During the day we see a number of stories emerging.A bunch of young children losing their mother,an atomic scientist giving away secrets to an unnamed country and the trial of a woman accused of mercy killing.Interwoven with this is the matrimonial woes of Hawkins.He wont talk to her on the phone.He wont take her out to lunch leaving this to Derek Farr,who once upon a time had an affair with her.She leaves a letter for Hawkins telling him she is leaving him.She heads off for the airport and manages to secure a ticket on a plane to Paris.however she doesn't go which is rather fortunate as the plane crashes killing everyone on board.Her name is on the passenger list and thinks she is dead.As he walks out the foyer at the end of the day there she is waiting for hi.Instead of giving her a warm hug and kiss all she gets is a wan smile from him as they leave together.At the climax of the film there is a long and verbose scene where Hawkins talks with a drunken reporter about the morality of what they are doing.So compared to many American films of this genre this is a pretty lifeless affair.
