Review by walter (posted on 5-Sep-2005)

I watched this film first time more than 20 years ago. I was very much impressed. It's a great film, a great thriller! Basil Dearden directed masterfully, Sean Connery is fine and very handsome. Ralph Richardson gives a lesson of acting and Gina Lollobrìgida shows she is a great actress, Lollobrìgida has talent, she is muhc involved as Marìa, her acting is sincere and very imaginative. This enjoyable movie proves Gina was infinitely better than ugly Sofìa. Also Gina was so beautiful and glamorous. I love this film and it is inmensely enjoyable, highly recommended!
