No matter how far you are,the war will be in your doorstep
It starts as a conspiracy movie.A man who is a spy of Nazis working for England.Then his identity comes clear and with important informations our man starts to escape.The chase begins.
Movie is really successful about giving audience the pressure of the timeline.But the most important thing is this movie holds the tension into the lives of people who has no connect with the war.Spy hides in the home of a family which lives in an island,far from war.They don't know who he is and police don't know where he is.So movie adds new level of adventure to its structure and gets some kind of thriller atmosphere.Will the secrets be in the hands of Nazis and what will be the end of the family.
Donald Sutherland plays a classical performance.The director does a good job about creating the tension.And the most beautiful thing is the movie itself.It has all the 70's spy movie genre and cinematography and holds the 'danger to the civil' factor besides all super-power states relationships.
And my conclusion for this movie is simple:No matter how far you are,the war will be knocking your door;in one way or another.
