    The Third Man

    ★★★★½

    The leading actor: Vienna. Bombed capital of Austria, divided into four Allied occupation zones. Dark nights. Black shadows, always in fearful motion. Dull, gray daylight. Sewers that look like abandoned gothic cathedrals. The city is ruled by black market. Shady characters roam lonely streets. Hasty footsteps echo on the damp cobblestones.
