Based on the novel of the same name by Graham Greene, this is a story of a French advocate Chavel who, while imprisoned by the Germans during the occupation, trades his material possessions to another prisoner in exchange for his life when condemned to the firing squad. At the end of the war, Chavel, posing as one of the other prisoners, returns to his home which is now occupied by Therese, the sister of the prisoner he traded his possessions to, and who bitterly awaits the return of the man who had indirectly caused the death of her brother. His real identity unknown to Therese, Chavel is invited to stay as a caretaker and to identify Chavel should he return to the house. The relationship between Chavel and Therese develops until one night, someone calling himself Chavel turns up at their doorstep. Written by

Mangeot, listen to me, I won't let you do it. I don't want to die, God knows I don't want to die! But I can't, you've got a family.
Yes. But in my family when we say we're going to do something, we do it. It's too late, we did a deal.

Well, as you can see now, just because a movie is about WWII doesn't mean that's it's going to be good (i.e. Pearl Harbor). However, this one's a real beauty. It's one of the better Anthony Hopkins movies I've seen. I was surprised that a movie this good would be made for t.v., but I guess you can't judge them all. 8/10.
