Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 10 May 2009
Cyril Connolly said of the British: "the greater part of the ruling class remains adolescent, school-minded, self-conscious, cowardly, sentimental, and in the last analysis homosexual." Joseph Losey was a shrewd enough observer of the British to see evidence of Connolly's observation.

There's a moment when Tony, (Edward Fox) says how much fun it is to be in Hugo's (Dirk Bogarde's) company, "it's like being back in the army." It's the closest any too characters get in the film (much closer than the men get to any of the women.)

The power play is exquisite, as is Bogarde's acting. It's a great allegory of the 1960s. Brilliant.
