Deadfall

Overview

In this clunky suspense film, straining to be Hitchcockian, Michael Caine plays recovered alcoholic Henry Clarke, who finds himself enticed into the home of Fe Moreau Giovanna Ralli, where he discovers an unusual arrangement -- apparently Fe Moreau would rather engage in a relationship with an ex-alcoholic than her husband Richard Eric Portman. Seems Richard is an out-of-the-closet homosexual, complete with a young Spanish stud Carlos Pierre as a plaything. The staid home life heats up to a boil when the three ...

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
An attempt to be daring, modern and "with it," even in 1968 Deadfall came across as tired, confused and dull. Director Bryan Forbes, who is capable of stylish, interesting genre work, is very much off form here; his attempts to ape Hitchcock fall quite flat, and much of the time he seems to be struggling just to get information from his convoluted screenplay across. There's a 23-minute sequence involving Michael Caine and Eric Portman attempting a heist, intercut with shots of Renata Tarrago on the guitar, that seems to have been lifted from Topkapi, but without the earlier film's ingenuity and skill; here, all it does is bring things to a dead, interminable halt. (Being largely silent, however, it does give the audience a break from the awkward dialogue.) Caine gives one of his least inspired performances, although admittedly Forbes the screenwriter has given him little to work with. Portman comes across slightly better, but nobody here can be said to be doing good work.
