It is somewhat strange that The Deadly Affair never had the right attention from the studio to release it in a better format. The film itself probably passes unnoticed to most viewers, something that is ultimately rather unfair to the novel, script and filmmakers. There is also an outstandingly good soundtrack, from Quincy Jones, while he was still under great influence from bossa nova waves, literally speaking. No surprise that it is due to Astrud Gilberto to sing the main theme, mind you, in Portuguese, whereas in the CD soundtrack this particular rendition is, sadly, unavailable! Great movie, great atmosphere, filled with espionage and suspense.
