When Inspector Tongman meets with Thorens, after he unsheathes the dagger, the cigarette in his mouth is about 1/3 ash. When he turns around to face the Inspector, and the camera angle changes, the ash is much smaller although the total length of the cigarette plus ash hasn't changed. See more »

User Reviews

Wonderful Stephen Boyd performance
1 April 2004 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies by the actor. Definitely not a miscast and great acting. Also a great story but maybe you would have to be first generation WW II dependent and from Holland to appreciate it's value. The novel by Jan De Hartog is extremely accurate of what went on in post war Europe and I loved this movie. Highly recommend it. Great scenery and tells the tale of the displacement of Holocaust victims as well. This movie did give him another nomination for the Golden Globes and rightly so.
