A sort of French and totally underrated Shock Corridor

I don't know if the screenplay was inspired by the Sam Fuller's masterpiece: SHOCK CORRIDOR, but I assure you that the two stories are so close that you could barely put a razor blade in between. A runaway man from the Gestapo, in France, during WW2, finds shelter in a mental institution, a psychiatric hospital lead by a friend of his. Our lead has no choice if he wants to escape from the Nazis. I have not seen all the Raoul André's films but, so far, that's his very best effort. He made, for most of all, corny, lousy tongue in cheek action comedy flicks. Corny, lousy and tongue in cheek but amusing time wasters made in France. So that film which I am talking about is far different from the other Raoul André's features, for sure. Totally different. I even doubt if he actually directed it himself. I usually more or less recognize a director's piece of work. Most of them have their own trade mark. But, here, I admit that I am astonished.

A true intelligent drama, so rare with Raoul André and his usually silly movies.
