The Man Between
Available on Prime Video, STUDIOCANAL Presents, ITVX
A later collaboration between James Mason and Carol Reed, The Man Between is often considered a companion piece to The Third Man thanks to its atmospheric portrayal of a city struggling to survive in a grim post-war reality of poverty and mistrust. The action is transposed to a divided Berlin, and to the beginning of the Cold War. Unlike the devilish Harry Lime, Mason's world-weary dealer Ivo Kerr is ultimately still a decent man, compelled by his love for a naïve schoolteacher (Claire Bloom) to make one last misguided trip through the Brandenberg Gate, with potentially tragic consequences.
