ldh's review

This is one of those movies i watch once and i am not tempted to watch them again. It is a classic early Hitchcock, but i find the story very uni-dimensional and straight forward, building up to the answer at the very end. The whole movie centers on the relationship between the 2 protagonists, kind of goofy people playing the man Vs. woman thing.

Technically, it also feels very plain, with nothing amazing in terms of the direction, cinematography or anything else as a matter of fact. The performances are very good, and the "romantic comedy" aspect of the film is quite good, but this is foremost a spy movie, a chase movie, and there, i think that the tension is lacking.
