Donald Sutherland and Kate Nelligan ignite the screen as ill-fated lovers in the exciting, emotionally involving thriller. Based on the best-selling novel by Ken Follet, this searing mystery is a roller coaster ride of suspense centering on the relationship between master spy and a brave woman - with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.

Englishmen know him as Faber, but to the fatherland, he's the loyal and lethal spy known as 'The Needle.' On his way back to Germany, Faber is shipwrecked on an island outpost where he befriends Lucy, a beautiful Englishwoman who lives there with her family. Lonely and scorned by her bitter, crippled husband, Lucy falls for the enigmatic stranger not knowing that he is a traitor determined to prevent the D-Day invasion. But as their passion erupts, Lucy discovers the brutal truth - as love and war melt into an electrifying climax of eroticism, adrenaline and terror.

 When love meets war

| | See all BarryNormanJunior's reviews (18)

A fast paced tale of betrayal and loyalty, this stylish depiction of love and war sits among the great thrillers of the eighties. Running at just under two hours with a great performance form Donald Sutherland, three characters find themselves flung together in a battle that could determine the success of the Normandy landings. Set on a remote island leaves viewers feeling both claustrobhobic and breathless. Well worth the sale price.

 A breath of fresh air in the war genre

I bought this due to my Grandad's raving reviews on it and I wasn't disappointed at all. First of all the price is so cheap it's worth a watch anyway. The film takes a fresh approach following a "German" spy in the fantastic Sutherland, but when he is on the run he finds love on Storm Island. The action is really exciting whilst it has its own chilling moments and induces the fear of loneliness on the island. Really worth a purchase.
