      Bob Thomas Associated Press A topnotch espionage tale. Jul 24, 2019 Full Review Jay Carmody Washington Star It would be a shame to miss the drama of this story. Aug 9, 2019 Full Review Laura Clifford Reeling Reviews This espionage thriller noir keeps us guessing as to who will betray trust to cash in his chips and Mankiewicz features some tense sequences, the highlight of which is Diello's attempted last score, almost undone by a cleaning lady... Rated: B+ Jul 20, 2011 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Mankiewicz's sharply observed Oscar-nominated espionage thriller is superlatively played by James Mason in the lead role of Cicero, the smart spy who operated within the British embassy in Turkey during WWII. Rated: A- Jul 3, 2005 Full Review Andy Klein Los Angeles CityBeat Rated: 3/5 Apr 7, 2005 Full Review Carol Cling Las Vegas Review-Journal Rated: 4/5 Feb 20, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      John Z The movie is based on a true story. The acting is superb, and the direction is flawless. James Mason is wonderful! One of France's greatest actresses, Danielle Darrieux, appears as the 'Countess Staviska'. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Steve D It seems to almost want me to pull for a Nazi. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Alec B A great witty spy thriller. Mason is utter perfection here, just relishing the opportunity to play this kind of villain. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Audience Member A great witty spy thriller. Mason is utter perfection here, just relishing the opportunity to play this kind of villain. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Surprisingly good. Held my attention throughout. First Rate acting and directing and writing. Nominated for an Academy award both for writing and directing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Urbane, suspenseful, and classy: Mason at his continental best. He is always a joy to watch, even in trash, and this most decidedly is not trash. Recommended highly. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
