A south american president arrives in Canada for brain surgery, but murderers plot the perfect crime. First movie directed by the great director of photography Jack Cardiff ("Under Capricorn", "Black Narcissus", "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman", "The Barefoot Contessa", "The Vikings", ...), "Intent to Kill" is competently directed with good casting but with nothing exceptional except the ending which is an explosive editing must see. The photography is rather realistic with full light (except in few scenes), far from Cardiff's masterpieces as a cinematographer.
