Holly Martins has been invited to unstable, post-World War II Vienna by his old chum Lime, who is now in the grand-scale drug dealing business, only to discover that he is dead. Except, he isn't of course, and a multilayered cat and mouse scenario is triggered. So, what's so good about it? Well, you have a stirring zither score by Anton Karas, the ferris wheel and the 'cuckoo clock' speech yet possibly its greatest triumph is to cram so much wonder into so little time.
