Storyline

Police in 1928 Austria arrest Phillippe Halsman, of Jewish origin, for Patricide and allege that he killed his father, Morduch, while on a hiking trip. Phillippe is defended by a Jewish lawyer, Richard Pressburger, who quickly comes to the conclusion that Judge Larcher is prejudiced against his client. This allegation prompts Larcher to warn Richard to continue defending his client - or join him in the cell for contempt charges. The question remains will Richard continue to defend his client or give up this case as he probably realizes that there is no chance of a fair trial. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Infinitely Fascinating
31 July 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

An intimate look into a fascinating period of history. Not your average pre-holocaust story, but a rewarding exploration of a lesser-known case.

Some of the performances were rather wooden, and the direction felt a bit awkward and TV-ish at times, but the story was gripping. A much different role for Mr. Swayze, as well. I didn't expect him capable of such a sobering dramatic performance.

I hadn't heard of Halsman before, but am curious to learn more about him.

I will definitely watch this again, though I can't wait for it to hit the big screen.
