“We confidently predict that this picture is one of the best that we will see this year.” The New York Times, 1945
One of the earliest fiction films to depict the oppression and persecution in Nazi Germany, this extraordinary British drama follows an elderly Jewish man who leaves England to embark on an ill-advised mission to search for the mother of a German child refugee. He immediately arouses the suspicions of the Gestapo and finds himself in terrifying danger.
