Carol Reed, UK, 93 minutes, in English without subtitles

A wonderfully evocative, innovative, and fascinating film, set in the ruins and chaos of post-war Vienna. Holly Martins, a writer of pulp Westerns, arrives in Vienna penniless as a guest of his childhood friend, yet soon finds himself drawn deep into intrigue and mystery. In the words of Roger Ebert, the film takes place “…in a shattered postwar city that has been divided into French, American, British and Russian zones, each with its own cadre of suspicious  officials”. An atmospheric thriller that is one of the undisputed masterpieces of cinema. Of all the movies I have seen, this one most completely embodies the romance of going to the movies. – Roger Ebert
