Though Donald Sutherland portrays a Nazi German spy, he is never seen in German Nazi military uniform in this movie and only vaguely as a German army cadet in a black-and-white group photo. See more »

Tight, kinetic suspenser
Donald Sutherland is superb as "The Needle", a Nazi spy pursued by the British government during World War II. Circumstances land him on Storm Island, a small, wind-swept patch of land off the English coast. There he falls in love with the sensual Kate Nelligan, the unhappy, lonely wife of a crippled war vet.
The late Richard Marquand's second feature film is a gripping, suspenseful wartime drama about doomed love. The blazing glow of this film is enhanced by sizzling yet subtle scenes of lovemaking and a stunning Miklos Rosza score.
The island vistas are breathtaking and Alan Hulme's pictures are rich and moody.
