Since it is such a classic, I was really eager to watch it. Out of the 4 movies involving Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, it is probably the best one they made together.

Well I really enjoyed this film, but it's clearly dated.
It's also especially nice to see two Hollywood Golden Era Actors Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, it's a really good film. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in The Golden Hollywood.

"Katsottu 26.10.2012 DVD Raymond Chandlerin kovaksikeitetyn rikoskirjallisuuden klassikko Syvä uni sai ensimmäisen elokuvasovituksen kuusi vuotta ilmestymisen jälkeen. Kirjan monimutkainen rikosvyyhti, jatkuva valheen ja huijauksen ilmapiiri ja rikosten hämärät motiivit loivat haastetta elokuvasovituksen tekoon, jota kepeän Hollywood-viihteen muokkaama, maksava yleisö pystyisi seuraamaan putoamatta kärryiltä.
