Next of Kin

Things begin to unravel after the murder of Kareem Shirani.
Charles Barr suggests that many of Ealing's war films can be usefully grouped together as representing particular themes or interests: he places Next of Kin alongside The Foremen Went to France (1942) and Went the Day Well? (1943) as films that deal with 'battles of wits' which 'enforces resource and alertness, and penalises complacency and amateurism.'
