This gripping historical drama, based on the acclaimed play by Cyril Gely and directed by Volker Schlöndorff (The Tin Drum), tells of the relationship between Dietrich von Cholitz (Niels Arestrup), the German military governor of occupied Paris, and Swedish consul-general Raoul Nordling (André Dussollier). The fate of Paris hangs on the line as Allies are about to enter Paris and Hitler wants to dynamite the city the way the Allies destroyed Berlin. Only a careful act of diplomacy between these two powerful men can save it from that destruction.

Director Carol Reed out-Hitchcocked Alfred Hitchcock with this timeless thriller, shot on location in Vienna, about a man (Joseph Cotton) who investigates the death of an old friend (Orson Welles), a black-market opportunist during the war. Author Graham Greene wrote the screenplay, and Robert Krasker provided the unforgettable photography, full of shadows and odd angles. With its airtight script, iconic acting, haunting music, and stark photography, The Third Man is routinely referred to as one of the greatest movies ever made.
