The Man Between is seen in a whole new light! by Studiocanal and BFI

James Mason, Claire Bloom and Hildegarde Neff


STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce the new 2K restoration of post-war spy thriller THE MAN BETWEEN, another title from their ever-expanding Vintage Classics collection, available for the first time ever on Blu-Ray, DVD and EST on 2 January. Starring British screen icons James Mason and Claire Bloom CBE alongside German sweetheart Hildegarde Neff, THE MAN BETWEEN is acclaimed Oscar-winning director Carol Reed’s follow on to the hugely popular The Third Man starring Orson Welles.


Set against the backdrop of a haunted, newly divided Berlin, Ivo Kern (Mason: 5 Fingers, Spring & Port Wine, Cross of Iron) – a troubled former lawyer now working the Black Market – gets caught up in a cat and mouse chase with potentially tragic consequences as he attempts to free a young British lady (Bloom: Richard III, Look Back in Anger, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold) who has been kidnapped in a case of mistaken identity.

The second collaboration between Reed and Mason, THE MAN BETWEEN makes the perfect companion piece to Reed’s earlier film The Third Man, for its similar portrayal of a city struggling to survive in post-war times.
