CGiii Comment

A masterpiece of film-making.

The lighting is incredible, the backdrops of Vienna and the sewers are spellbinding...

The story compelling, the acting perfect, the music inspiring...

Carol Reed at his best.

The(ir) Blurb...

An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly Martins, arrives in a post war Vienna divided into sectors by the victorious allies, and where a shortage of supplies has lead to a flourishing black market. He arrives at the invitation of an ex-school friend, Harry Lime, who has offered him a job, only to discover that Lime has recently died in a peculiar traffic accident. From talking to Lime's friends and associates Martins soon notices that some of the stories are inconsistent, and determines to discover what really happened to Harry Lime.
