The Third Man
film — UK — 1949

Action takes place in post-war Vienna where an American tries to discover everything about the death of his very best friend. Heroes are quite interesting and so is the action which isn`t really clear from the beginning. There is a love story present, of course, but it doesn`t get too sulky and sweet. I liked the film, it being one of the most classic pieces of the so called film-noir, but I didn`t fall for it. It may sound silly but the film just didn`t touch me, therefore I don`t admit that it`s one of the best pieces of cinema from the 20th century.
Quote:"ln ltaly, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed. But they produced Michelangelo,Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. ln Switzerland, they had brotherly love. They had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce?The cuckoo clock."
