Directed by Joseph Mankiewicz
This is a fantastic film. It is hard to feel completely saved from the slew of bad movies we have been dealing with lately, since after this we are back in the same nightmare with Deliverance. This great movie merely feels like a mirage.
Andrew Wyke invites Milo Tindler, his wife's lover, over to his manor to "sort things out." For some reason, Milo agrees to come (it's probably a British thing). Andrew proposes that Milo takes his wife and some jewelry, because apparently he is very giving. Andrew explains that he will report the jewelry stolen and collect the insurance money. Could it just be an elaborate hoax? Are they both underestimating each other? Am I really this many questions in a plot summary?
What an entertaining movie and a fun break from the violence monotony. It's just a bonus that two of the greatest actors of all time are the stars.
Remade with Michael Caine and Jude Law. Anyone have any thoughts on the remake?
Apparently, Michael Caine fangirled extremely hard when he met Laurence Olivier.
