The Young Director Tries Far Too Hard to Impress
28 February 2019 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

The Observer's critic incredibly declared this "unquestionably Asquith's best film to date", which means the youthful Anthony Asquith's frantic desire to draw attention to himself by outrageously over-directing a basically very simple retread of 'Le Million' had had the desired result.

The film is full of close-ups worthy of Sergio Leone crashing together, and Alex Vetchinsky's art direction, Gunther Krampf's photography and - above all - Mischa Spolianski's score all combine to bludgeon the audience in the service of a rather simple story that ceases to interest long before the film ends.
