Eye of the Needle is a 1981 film directed by Richard Marquand, based on the novel of the same title by Ken Follett, and starring Donald Sutherland.


In World War II Englandmarker, German master spy Henry Faber (Sutherland) learns a secret of supreme importance: the landing site chosen by the Allies for the invasion of Europemarker. He makes his way to a remote, sparsely inhabited Scottishmarker island to rendezvous with a U-boat to take him to Germany, while the British authorities frantically search for him.

While waiting, Faber becomes acquainted with an unhappy couple living on the island, Lucy (Kate Nelligan) and David Rose (Christopher Cazenove). David was a Royal Air Force pilot until he was crippled in an accident caused by his reckless driving; he takes out his anger and bitterness on his wife. Lonely, Lucy allows Faber to seduce her. Later, David discovers that Faber is not who he claims to be and tries to hold him for the authorities, but is killed. When Lucy finds his body, a deadly game of cat-and-mouse begins.
