Trivia

This film's director Jeannot Szwarc once said of this movie around the time it was first released: "I'd been looking for something like this . . . something like The Third Man (1949). I'm a classicist, I guess. I always like to do classical genres of film. And there hasn't been a film for years like The Third Man (1949) which, if anything, is the style of this one . . . with something of Z (1969) in it, too." See more »

Nice work my Sheen & Neill
22 May 2002 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Based on R2 DVD by EuroVideo 98 min

Direction and editing could be better as the story is occasionally confusing for no good reason, lacks tension and the ending is very abrupt. The DVD is in 4:3.

All that aside, both stars [looking very young indeed] turn in respectable performances and the locations look authentic.

6/10 a little generous but worth watching on TV
