ReceptionEdit

Writing for The Spectator, Graham Greene praised the film as "a comedy of astonishing intelligence and finish". Greene emphasized the "witty dialogue, [and] the quick intelligent acting" of Tone and Merkel, commenting that the film felt "[bathed] in an atmosphere fantastic, daring and pleasantly heartless".[3]
