Intrigue in the Dolomites
9 July 2019 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

A British mystery thriller; A story set in the Italian Alps. An actor-turned-soldier is assigned to go undercover in the Alps and keep an eye on a suspicious gang planning to recover gold bullion stolen by the Nazis during the Second World War. The splendid cast deliver spirited performances and the director maintains the mystery and atmosphere capably with location footage that adds to the isolation effect. The soundtrack is a high point. It is tightly scripted, but it is a far-fetched story and unconvincing.
