Great film.Another play to film adaptation.There seems to good few on the list,in the last 10 or so any ways. This one features 2 actors; Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier.Great performances by both.It tells the story of a crime writer who invites his wifes bit on the side over for a chat in which he propositions him with a scam.Do a fake break in steal my jewels and i’ll do an insurance claim,you fuck off with my wife with 170,00 quid ill get 250,000 on the claim.But there’s an ulterior motives.The writer is an eccentric game player with a flair for the flamboyant but Caine has a plan too.Well acted,doesn’t seem like a 40 year old film.

IMDB RATING      –     8
MY RATING     –     8.4
