When Inspector Tongman meets with Thorens, after he unsheathes the dagger, the cigarette in his mouth is about 1/3 ash. When he turns around to face the Inspector, and the camera angle changes, the ash is much smaller although the total length of the cigarette plus ash hasn't changed. See more »
Lisa is a powerful drama about a German concentration camp refugee, played by Dolores Hart, trying to get to Israel to begin a new life after the war, and the Dutch Police Inspector, played by Stephen Boyd, who decides to help her. The story is gripping and intense and the performances are superb. Both Stephen Boyd and Dolores Hart turn in one of the finest performances of their careers and so does the all-star supporting cast, including Donald Pleasance and Hugh Griffith. Wonderful film for a rainy day afternoon.
