James Mason gives his usual solid performance as the downtrodden businessman who has never escaped from the domineering influence of his father, even after leaving the old brute behind in the East after Germany's partition following World War II. Finding that father has faked his own death and now plans to escape the Communists inside a coffin bound for West Berlin, the son sees a chance for revenge, but instead inadvertently causes the death of a young woman he has fallen in love with, who seemed to offer him a last chance of happiness. Confined to an hour's running time, this Le Carre anecdote is an effective, if unpleasant, entertainment. Hugh Griffith, the imposing bully of a father, was three years younger than Mason, his screen "son".
