This film is captivating on a number levels. The basic story is set against the backdrop of the wreckage of post-war Berlin; by now split-asunder by the border between East and West and the Soviet occupation. The first scene sees a Briton, innocent and young Claire Bloom, flying into a foggy Templehof Airport to be greeted by her new German sister-in-law whom she has never met. The pair are observed by a small boy whose role in the film is a sort of liaison character - a messenger boy and spy for Mason. Hildegarde Knef, an extraordinarily attractive and complex blonde, plays the role of the sister-in-law and it is plain from the tension between the women that there is more than just post-war angst in the air. While it is very clear that she and her husband, a British officer and Doctor, are very much in love, it is plain that she is in a state of great anxiety for some inexplicable reason. When the character played by Mason keeps appearing, the unease of Knef seems to become more acute. It soon becomes clear that he is living a twilight existence working with black marketeers and at odds with the aggressive underworld boss for whom he is working. Bloom is fascinated by him and to Knef's inexplicable, even jealous annoyance, accepts dates with him. There is an interesting exchange between the women where Knef comes out with words that you feel are not entirely just dialogue between to characters "there's not so much difference in our ages, but there's a hundred years in the way we've lived" the words of a German woman who has lived through the fall of Berlin and all it's horrors, to an evidently sheltered young British woman.Read more ›

A wonderful thrilling film that is not generally available. It is produced in Germany and you have to select English. More expensive because of this, but worth it. The Director, Carol Reed, is masterful.
