Funeral in Berlin is a smooth and slickly done espionage movie that derives most of its success from the fact that actor Michael Caine is so able. Full Review

Faithful hardcore genre fans will find much to like here among the cloaks and daggers.... On the other hand, the pacing is slow and the twisty, sometimes flabby script might be frustrating for a viewer not fully engaged with such skullduggery. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Second and least successful entry in the Harry Palmer series has its moments.

Product Description:

The second film (fitting between THE IPCRESS FILE and THE BILLION DOLLAR BRAIN) starring Michael Caine as Len Deighton's super spy Harry Palmer is characterized by lush photography and smooth period style. In this outing, Palmer, choosing to spy for the Queen in place of doing time in prison, is sent to Berlin to assist Soviet Colonel Stok (Oscar Homolka), the head of security for the Berlin Wall who wishes to defect to the West. Palmer arranges for Stok to cross the border in a coffin, but things unfortunately don't go as planned.
