ANOTHER FAILED CHESTERTON ADAPTATION
7 November 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This second film with Heinz Rühmann as G.K. Chesterton's creation Father Brown at least tries to tell a comprehensive detective story, but the writers forgot to make it into a logical plot, let alone into an interesting and amusing one. Maybe they had a good idea, but that never surfaces. The film just moves from A to B. A good director could have made it into a passable film, director Von Ambesser seemed to have been glad he was able to shoot more or less adequately each scene. It is as with the first Rühmann as Father Brown film (Das schwarze Schaf 1960): it may look all very English, but it desperately lacks the charm of Chesterton's stories.(5/10)
