An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly Martins, arrives in a post war Vienna divided into sectors by the victorious allies, and where a shortage of supplies has led to a flourishing black market. He arrives at the invitation of an ex-school friend, Harry Lime, who has offered him a job, only to discover that Lime has recently died in a peculiar traffic accident. From talking to Lime's friends and associates Martins soon notices that some of the stories are inconsistent, and determines to discover what really happened to Harry Lime.Written by

I found the musical score to be completely distracting on the movie. In my view, it was not matched at all well to the content and locale. It would have been more appropriate for a movie set in Hawaii or even in Spain, but not in Vienna. The guitar just doesn't work.
