Contains a terrific surprise ending. Rating: 8 stars
9 August 2004 | by (St. Clair Shores, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie about a young couple who engage in psychological games with a door-to-door saleslady who collapses in their home and becomes their houseguest is intriguing and almost fascinating to watch. Simone Signoret is wonderful as the saleslady, Lisa Schindler. After the film is over, you want to go back and watch her performance all over again. It's one of those types of stories. The sixties era in which the movie was filmed is captivating, too. Definitely for those who enjoyed such movies as "Night Watch" with Elizabeth Taylor, "The Usual Suspects", and "Diabolique", which also starred Simone Signoret. A very good thriller, with interesting twists, a cool sixties atmosphere, and Simone Signoret stealing every scene she is in from James Caan and Katharine Ross, who, at times, looks in awe of her co-star.
