Pretty and romantic WWII spy thriller
I am satisfied with EYE OF THE NEEDLE. There are many plots and twists without great special effects or action. Anyway, the film shows a spy story set in the second World War and that is well directed. The picture and camera work is not as perfect as in today’s big blockbusters but it doesn’t shock because it is well compensated with historical details and facts from that war time. It’s interesting seeing Donald Sutherland in this role as a lover and villain. He is for me one of the great actors that made many enjoyable thrillers. All in all a watchable movie that has a better class than these disappointing thrillers of nowadays and once again a DVD from the house of MGM that works for an entertaining Saturday evening. My wife and me vote 7/10 that matches exactly the actual vote of 7/10.
A forgotten little classic
When this film was made Sutherland was still a major star and yet this movie was quickly confined to late night slots on BBC2.By 1981 when this film was made the big WW2 film was decidedly out of fashion and as a result were largely ignored by the public. (Another example was Yanks, 1979). This would continue to be the case until arguably Private Ryan in ’97. This is a shame as Sutherland produces a truly menacing performance in this film which maintains the suspense of the piece to its conclusion. It’s at its best in the claustrophobic atmosphere of the Scottish island. Cazenove is excellent as the crippled pilot and his bittern’s at missing out on RAF glory is brilliant. I was unaware of Nelligan before this film but she is impressive in every way! Ultimately the film hinges on the relationship between these three and the war remains predominantly in the background. The violence, by modern standards, is mild and I would encourage anyone to have a look at this movie at some stage.
