Phillipe, the son of an ambassador in London, idolizes Baines, his father's butler, a kind of hero in the eyes of the child, whose perception changes when he accidentally discovers the secret that Baines keeps and witnesses the consequences that adults'...
Policeman: "Does your father work at the embassy?"
Philippe: "No. He's ambassador."
Rose (the prostitute): "Oh! I know your daddy!"
Absolutely brilliant little film. I can't think of a single thing I'd change in it. Director Reed makes the most out of the slightest details and mixes dread with humor with a skill that rivals Hitchcock's. The bewildering sensations of childhood have never been so honestly and accurately portrayed. After loving this and The Third Man, I'm making it a mission to watch more of Reed's work.
Wow, amazing film. I can't believe this isn't on more lists. The child actor is fantastic, and his confusion poignant and engaging. And lots of great Hitchcockian suspense.
