Excellent version of Tristan story
10 October 1998 | by (Rochester, NEW YORK) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was genius. For this implicit portrayal of Nazi politics to be made in Vichy France is astounding. The sinister Achille is one of the most shockingly real characters I've ever seen. If you speak French, see this movie (do NOT rely on the subtitling...it's shoddy).
