Robert Donat's lively performance saves this ordinary spy caper from its conventional story line.

Audience Reviews for The Adventures of Tartu

Standard WWII espionage tale replet with predictable plot, ham acting and one dimensional Nazis. At least the climatic scene was suspenseful..

Robert Donat, Valerie Hobsen and Glynis Johns help keep this espionage thriller entertaining. At the same time though, the grim behind enemy lines setting (interesting focus on wartime Czechoslovakia) doesn't always mix well with the lighter elements. Overall though it remains unique and suspenseful and is worthwhile, especially if you enjoy the leads.
