This movie is one of two films mostly released globally around the same time in the early 1980s (i.e. mid-1981 to 1982) that involved a love triangle between a man, an unhappy sexually frustrated wife and her irritable crippled husband. The other film was Lady Chatterley's Lover (1981). Actually, in the Eye of the Needle novel written by Ken Follett a character mentions Lady Chatterley's Lover (not by name but through a description from a moment of the book). See more »

This film about a German agent trying to escape from Britain might seem to offer limited scope for interest, but Sutherland's menacing performance and the events on the island turn it into something approaching a study in psychopathy, laden with uncertainty and fear. The vulnerability of Lucy (Kate Nelligan, a sensitive and intelligent but definitely pre-feminist woman helps to give the film an added poignancy. Sutherland's performance is such that we are always fascinated by the damaged and ruthless character he portrays. Those who dislike war films may find themselves surprised by this film.
