Interesting, no more

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I searched for this film since a little while. A UK thriller from the early sixties and directed by Ernest Morris, a rather good filmmaker who already gave us many movies, noir, for the most of them.

But I must admit that I was a bit disappointed by this feature. A little. It begins with an opening scene and credits set in Paris - with a beautiful frenchie accordion soundtrack, and the next second we see the port of New York, and Manhattan in background. I found this something weird. Surprising. And the sequence after, in the court room, with the guy asked to testify against the mob - the mafia - I suddenly thought of a sort of HAIL MAFIA, directed by Raoul Levy. It began in the same way, as far as I remember.

Unfortunately, the following of this film is rather flat, tepid, very talkative. But the overall atmosphere is quite entertaining: score, photography, acting, everything. Except the lack of action...

Worth seeing although.
