Elegantly balancing suspense and farce, Carol Reed and Graham Greene’s tale of the fraught relationship between a boy and the beloved butler he suspects of murder is a delightfully macabre thriller of the first order and a visually and verbally dazzling knockout.

""A uniquely frank picture about a boy negotiating his way through the adult universe, from Carol Reed (who worked so well with children) and Graham Greene, with great performances from Ralph Richardson and Bobby Henrey as the boy." "

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2011 (713 movies items)

"3.1. 2011 An almost forgotten British genius Carol Reed was in my opinion at his best in the late 1940s. In three years he directed three influential masterpieces, "Odd Man Out", "The Fallen Idol" and "The Third Man". "The Fallen Idol" is a suspense-loaded thriller with typical elements of film noir and its story is told through the eyes of a young boy who is a pathological liar. The boy witnesses a death of a woman and knowing that the main suspect is his butler friend he learns serious lesson"

"Sept.25 Carol Reed's Fallen Idol unfolds marvelously with graceful tension. And the child role is not even irritating. This is a classic."
