The scene where Nick Nolte points a Luger pistol towards his mouth thinking about suicide, the toggle on top of the pistol was up and not flat. The pistol would not have fired this way. The toggle would have to be down or flat. See more »
A beautifully rendered movie, a credit to its star
Seldom do I see a movie in which the star performs so well you can hardly believe he is an actor, but he comes across as the real guy he is portraying. I believed Nick Nolte was an American spy who seemed to renounce his American citizenship in World War II--when in fact he should have been rewarded for having served America so well after the war was over and he returned to civilian life. I have seen Nick Nolte in other movies, but never have I been so impressed with his depth of characterization as he manifests in this film.
