Synopsis

This witty tale of intrigue, told from a child’s perspective by Graham Greene, brilliantly evokes the transition from childhood to adolescence. Carol Reed’s noted rapport with child actors drew a remarkable performance from eight-year-old Bobby Henrey as Felipe, the son of a foreign ambassador, left in the care of the Embassy butler, Baines (Ralph Richardson) and his domineering wife. Felipe is drawn into Baines’s fateful affair with a young French woman and begins to learn about dissimulation.
