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)

A True Story
17 July 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed it very much. The writing and bigotry against Jews, was on the wall,(literally in 1928) and Phillipe's father was a real pain in the neck. Paternalistic extremo. His arrogance and bullying factors caused his demise, but not by his son's hand. Although, one had to think why the hesitancy giving him heart pills and trying to stop him falling. But when the truth is revealed, one can understand, Phillip's father's obnoxious relationship with his family intimidated Phillipe and I suspect that barrier between son and father was noticed by others on the mountain and in the hotel. Ones who already had turned against Jews. However, how did they know they were Jews, from the blonde who had slept with the father the night before? And I queried why Phillipe took photos of his dead father, when the head wound was not there when he went for help. Was he in shock? He appeared to be, and also I feel felt a bit guilty about his father, given he had had an argument with him prior to this. This is understandable.

Some might again say "Not another film about wartime Jews" but the story has credibility. And it was just as well that Phillipe accepted the pardon and went to America. As others did of course, and who would wonder when the word got around, the Jews were targets now from the Nazi's. The scenery in Austria was wonderful, the acting was very good, and it was a satisfying film script.
