One of his quietest and least startling. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- There is no black and white, no good or evil. There is only grey, and, in that grey area, an understanding of the frailty of human nature. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- It moves along like a well-oiled machine until the devestating final act ties all of the smaller stories together, making it's point without being overbearing or obvious. Full Review

The best film of Renoir's wartime American exile is a moving tirade against Nazism that packs quite an emotional punch. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It should have been stronger drama than it is. But for the points it does make and its concept of man as a continuing vessel for freedom's fire, it is certainly well worth seeing. It comes close, even if doesn't quite hit the mark. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

When Nazi troops seize his town, timid schoolmaster Albert Lory (Charles Laughton) submits to his new masters, although he cannot help but be inspired by the defiance of many of his fellow citizens. Then Albert is hauled before a tribunal, falsely accused of murder. Standing alone against the power of the Third Reich, this seemingly weak man then reveals an invincible soul.
