The film from start to finish reflects sophistication in front of as well as behind the cameras (with all external scenes filmed in the locales associated with the story).
There are some twists and turns throughout the film that continue to keep your interest with lots of intrique. As "Ulysses Diallo" (codenamed "Cicero" by the Germans) continues with confidence on his treacherous path of espionage, several things occur - 'little' obscure events that begin his downfall - things that in and of themselves have no meaning, one of which, is that of a housekeeper who can't seem to get her vacuum to start! What happens to this man at the end of it all is so ironic that it absolutely made for a perfect ending!
(Item of interest: This was reportedly one of Mason's favorite films.)
A highly recommended spy film - especially for James Mason fans.
