The review of this Movie prepared by ldpaulson

Charade was a movie that would put you on the edge of your seet. You didn't really know who the killer is until the end of the movie, but in all of that there was love between the two main characters. This film, even though it is old, will keep you on the edege of your seet. It will make you laugh. If you are one for murder mysteries/love stories you really have to see this movie.
