Witness for the Prosecution

Billy Wilder Estados Unidos, 1957

HenriqueA's rating of the film Testemunha de Acusação

Charles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich and Billy Wilder. What a combination. It's definitely one of the most entertaining and joyous courtroom movies (it's not a comedy but it's not a drama either) I've ever watched, but not only because of the last ten minutes. Aside from the cinematography and the dollar bin set design, everything here from the acting to the directing and the script just soars on the screen.
