Une excellente prestation de Klaus Maria Brandauer, décidément un des plus grands acteurs actuels, toujours aussi efficace et discret... www.cinefiches.com
Disappointing closer of Szabó's 'German' trilogy. Embarrassingly mediocre directing, lots of anachronisms. More importantly, Szabó omits a crucial detail from the story – the fact Hanussen was a Jew –, which nullifies all the revelatory pretensions.
