backtrack; The third man (1949)

In post-war traumatized Vienna, true love and friendship are hard to find – and even harder to hold on to – among the shadows, debris and desolation. So will the world ever be cleansed of its vileness? Well, take a guess…

A masterful mystery with a top position in just about everybody’s book, I would guess. Including mine, of course.

  1. Such a good movie. It doesn’t hurt to have a script written by Graham Greene, one of England’s best authors from the 20th Century. A marvelous film from minute one through the end.

    Unsurprisingly, I agree. Good old Orson is supposed to have tampered with parts of the script, but the result is definitely coherent enough for me.
