Peter Finch is a dedicated doctor working in the village of Selim, on a Far East island. He is loved and trusted by the villagers and finds himself involved in their political problems. Mary Ure is his estranged wife who comes out for a trial reconciliation at a time when the locality is in a state of unrest. Finch’s ideals are such that he tries to prevent the villagers from getting up in arms against the local police and plantation manager.

The acting throughout this drama is first class, with Finch particularly convincing. Ure has little chance in the colorless role of his wife, but Natasha Parry as a native nursing sister, in love with Finch, is warm, sensitive and technically very sound.

Jill Craigie has provided a slow moving, but literate script, from a novel by James Ramsey Ullman. Ronald Neame’s direction brings out qualities of dignity and credibility.
