What a good surprise, this little war story which takes place during WW1. The tale of a living statue, actually a french soldier, disguised as a stone statue, put here by his commanding officer to observe the enemy movements. The soldier in question - Maximilian Schell - stays here, during long hours and then reports to his superiors, about what he saw.
And then one time, a German soldier reports his officer that he saw a miracle, a statue moving just before his eyes. The German officers understand what it means, and ask the private if he told anything to the statue...The future German troops movements, for instance...
I let you watch this very good TV episode, interesting at the most, and so unusual. Maximilian Schell gives here a short but outstanding performance.
Directed by Paul Henreid.
