One of the best films ever.



Fantastic acting, brilliant dialogue, superb setting. This film has everything that is good about film, and indeed life.

Very well said, thank you. I finally got around to seeing this & it was time more than well-spent!

One of my favorite films of 1963. Courtenay and Christie were excellent, as was the rest of the cast.
