Late Madeleine Carroll- almost good.
26 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are some great camera-angles with some very abrupt, bizarre editing between simultaneous scenes.

Rennie's character is vile, but it is a treat to see Madeleine Carroll (in the usual persona) in one of her last roles. She gets a few really worthwhile scenes, and the director hovers on some good lip-trembling close-ups. It is a good performance and it was only to be wished that the director, with his splendid lighting director and quirky editor might not have produced something better paced. The climax is so risible that it must be seen.

And I did enjoy the many caricature supporting characters.

It comes up on TV sometimes. Worth a look if you like soap opera with amusing attempts at pseudo-psychology and use of odd camera-angles, and all in the Swiss Alps.
