Dirk Bogarde was a real favorite of mine. And when you throw Harold Pinter and Joseph Losey into the mix...well, it's gonna be interesting.
In this film, a professor, feeling at odds with his middle-class, middle-aged life, becomes involved in the lives of his students. And one, in particular. This became a cautionary story for me when marrying a professor.
That panicky air British films of this era have always make my heart pound. Was it the music?
