Une oeuvre courageuse, dénonciatrice du laxisme de l'Eglise et de la scandaleuse attitude de Pie XII pour ses largesses avec le pouvoir nazi... www.cinefiches.com
Essential, as always, and unfortunately all too relevant 70 years after the war. I love the cuts to trains between scenes.
The "Film with a message" genre is always very tricky to tackle. A documentary would have worked much better.
the endless games of war
it's simple enough to portray the horrors of the Holocaust, what is harder is to build a compelling case for those that tried to do their best from the inside to prevent them
the theme raises this film to an impressive level of horror and distress above the more purely filmic quality of the thing, in itself. Perhaps, with more craft, it would have been up there with Schindler's List.
Not enough done to explore the motivations of its central characters, rescued by a strong narrative and an interesting different side of a notoriously difficult subject matter
i like to see amen by costas gravas
Another excellent film by Costa-Gavras, I find his work to be amazing, I am thoroughly a fan.
una de mis favoritas
muy impresionante... soy católico, pero... si la Iglesia miró para el lado en la 2da GM... mal, muy doloroso...
