Quotes

[the Queen knows that Sir Anthony Blunt is a traitor and Blunt knows that the Queen knows this, but both maintain a facade of innocence as they discuss the Queen's art collection, amid many coded references]
H.M.Q.: Portraits are supposed to be frightfully self-revealing, aren't they? Show what one's really like - the secret self. Either that or else the eyes are supposed to follow you round the room. Have you had your portrait painted?
Sir Anthony Blunt: No, Ma'am.
H.M.Q.: So we don't know whether you have a secret self?

Music
2 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am delighted that my music for this film has been attributed to Handel ("Soundtrack: Overture to Judas Maccabeus") because John Schlesinger asked me to compose something in his style - the themes of the film being 'things that were not as they seemed' and 'incorrect attribution'. I have submitted a suggested correction - although the mistake is an amusing one, having in mind the title of the film.

I have checked the Handel and am pleased to report that I did not steal it (senza pizzicato = not pinched), less still rob it (senza rubato). Nor should it be taken as 'pastiche'. It was composition in the Baroque style, which is quite different.

Please forgive my rating of 10, but the music that someone took for Handel is rather good: (senza modesty).
