5.0 out of 5 stars A cinema gem that has not dimmed with age, 15 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has been at least 30 years since I last saw this gem, but I remembered how good I thought it was at the time. I was not disappointed! It remains a really good film that gets into the plot within 5 minutes of beginning. My 23 year old daughter, who is a harsh critic of films, watched it with me and was also impressed, especially by the storyline and the atmospheric cinematography commencing with a monsoon-like opening sequence at a funeral. I have no hesitation in recommending it highly, and have already done so to cinema-loving friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding in every way!, 2 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfection in the film-makers craft. This film is truly faultless. The screenplay is a masterpiece and the direction, black and white cinematography, music, casting and acting are all faultless. The commentary by Bryan Forbes provides many interesting facts, including that the part of Colonel Hyde was originally offered to Cary Grant (thankfully he declined and the role went to the far more appropriate Jack Hawkins) and that, perhaps surprisingly, this film went down very well in the USA. Highly recommended.
