"Marnie" is one of Hitchcock's darker films that features themes like kleptomania, compulsive lying, female frigidity , dark family secrets and childhood trauma. Phew ! As you can tell , it is not a barrel of laughs, but it is well acted and the plot is developed well. "Marnie" is part romance, part mystery and part thriller and deals with the relationship between a rich, eccentric ,slightly maverick businessman (Sean Connery) and the beautiful, but psychologically disturbed Marnie (Tippi Hedren). Connery tries unsuccessfully to get behind Marnie's icy protective shell,only penetrating it and uncovering the mystery behind her traumatised condition in a dramatic denouement at the home of one of her relatives. "Marnie" makes for uncomfortable viewing at times and is ,perhaps, the last really good film that Hitchcock made.
