Os furos óbvios do roteiro acabam sendo compensados pela direção tensa de Young, pela eficiente montagem e, principalmente, pelas atuações de todo o elenco (mas Hepburn e Arkin merecem destaque).

Wait Until Dark, Frederick Knott's gimmicky stage play about a blind woman terrorized by crooks, was brought to the screen in 1967 and was accompanied by an even more outlandish gimmick.

This superb drama filled with spell-binding tension has not lost an iota of its considerable impact, even 40 years after it was made. Audrey Hepburn is mesmerising as the blind woman whose quick thinking is more illuminating than the brightest of lights

Audrey Hepburn received her fifth (and last) Oscar nomination for effectively playing a blind woman in this well-executed thriller based on the Broadway smash hit; equally good are the villains, played by the young Alan Arkin and Richard Crenna.

One of the darkest thrillers, and most innovative as well, this film is a classic suspense-thriller, verging into horror, without missing a beat. The aura of… More
