REVIEW FOR THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO LITTLE - ENGLISH FILM BY JON AMIEL
Creaking Projectors is screening an English movie, The Man Who Knew Too Little, on 10th October, at the Syn, Taj Deccan. The movie is a 1997 American espionage film starring Bill Murray, directed by Jon Amiel, and written by Robert Farrar and Howard Franklin.
The film is based on Farrar's novel Watch That Man, and the title is a parody of Alfred Hitchcock's 1956 film, The Man Who Knew Too Much.
Wallace Ritchie (Murray) flies to England to spend his birthday with his brother, James (Peter Gallagher). James has business guests coming over and must find something to occupy his brother until dinner is over. Wallace ends up taking part in the "Theatre of Life," which promises to treat the participant like a character in a crime drama.
Trouble begins when Wallace answers a phone call intended for a hitman, and is mistaken for a real spy. He becomes tangled up in a plot to kill Russian and British dignitaries on the eve of the signing of an important peace agreement between the two nations. For him, it's all an act, but to the men who want a 2nd Cold War, Wallace is public enemy.
