Witness for the Prosecution

Billy Wilder Estados Unidos, 1957

dionysus67's rating of the film Testemunha de Acusação

An extraordinary courtroom drama, which not only impresses with the unexcpected twists and turns but manages to curb any farfetchedness by recourse to a tight and acerbic screenplay on top of Laughton's brilliant performance. Dietrich's icy despair and devotion sustains beautifully the post-war angst and justice's balancing-out of its own flaws and loopholes serves as a revitalizing moral antidote to the tragedy.
