Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
This taut thriller depicts the transformation of two unlikely lovers:
Him: A heartless Nazi killer spy whose code-name, "the Needle" probably refers to his method of killing. He is sent on assignment in England and learns top-secret information that could crush the Allied plan for D-day. But after being stranded on a remote island off the British coast, he falls in deeply love with...
Her: A neglected and shy wife who learns too late his terrible secret and must find the courage to defend herself, her child... and her country from impending doom.
Beautiflly acted by Kate Nelligand and Donald Sutherland. Don't miss this one.
