    Philippe: "No. He's ambassador."
    Rose (the prostitute): "Oh! I know your daddy!"

    Absolutely brilliant little film. I can't think of a single thing I'd change in it. Director Reed makes the most out of the slightest details and mixes dread with humor with a skill that rivals Hitchcock's. The bewildering sensations of childhood have never been so honestly and accurately portrayed. After loving this and The Third Man, I'm making it a mission to watch more of Reed's work. 6 years 8 months ago
