A hauntingly beautiful film.
6 May 2003 | by spacecowboy1337See all my reviews

Wow. That's all i can say after seeing hugo haas's masterpiece. The images from this film will stay in my head for ages. I was tense at every one of the knife throwing scenes, and was amazed at how a film made 50 years ago can still stand up like it has today. I suggest all people to go to your local video store and rent it immediately.
