Pinewood oldie
21 May 2002 | by mrinmanSee all my reviews

Like many Pinewood Studios movies of this era, the cinematography runs like a stage play and this leaves the spotlight firmly on the actors. Both Nadia Gray and David Farrar play their roles adequately though rather wooden. I like the way that casting works in this period. Even before they open their mouths you can tell they are up to no good and this is particularly so for Maurice Teynar as the evil brother. Great touches when the blind Farrar stumbles around Chaval's dark appartment and each area he comes too lights up as if through his senses. Budgets were obviously short on the burning taxi in the valley which looks like someone was holding a lighter to the set! Still worth a view on late night TV.
