This is an amazing film. Set in a divided Vienna just after WWII, it’s got a unique look and sound, a great story and is rightly talked about as one of the greats.
The best thriller on my favourite list, it’s about what happens when an American arrives in Vienna to take a friend up on a job offer only to find his friend has just died in an accident. Discrepancies in the stories different witnesses tell, make him suspicious of foul-play and he finds his friend wasn’t the man he thought. There are black-marketeers, a girl, and a great betrayal. Fantastic stuff.
