One of John Barry's Finest Scores
28 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it was first released in the UK, and that was a long time ago. As others have said, it was not well received by the critics and the public largely stayed away. I went to see it because it had Michael Caine in it and the music was by John Barry. Reasons enough I thought, and I wasn't wrong: it is a mesmerising movie with a well written story beautifully realised for the screen.

John Barry more than rose to the occasion; I think he must also have been greatly inspired by the images and story he was working to.

Now it is available on DVD for everyone to see, at last, and I can't recommend it highly enough. If you want more then have a look here http://www.silvascreen.co.uk/master.cfm?SilvaCode=FILMCD355&id=3466 where you can also get hold of a recreation of the complete original music score composed by John Barry, lovingly and accurately recreated by Nic Raine with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Crouch End Festival Chorus.
