We live in a world where politics and agendas influence every facet of our lives. This gentle satire isn't just one about the Cold War, it's about diplomacy in any age at any time.
Ustinov had a unique sense of humor which is evident in this movie. What makes it special is that there is an overwhelming sense of romance in the film too. The running gag line in the movie (we/they know they/we know we/they know their code) comes to my mind in nearly every espionage film I see. I always want to turn to friends and say the line, but as this film has had such limited exposure in the last few decades, I know no one else will get the joke.
Why isn't this movie available on DVD???
