I enjoyed it very much!
31 March 2015 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film very much! First of all it is a very interesting recreation of a stage play into a film. Plot is interesting well enough since the subject is of a great interest to the general public, one night in August of 1944 when general in command of Paris had to decide should he follow Hitlers orders and blow up Paris or to surrender without doing it. He made good decision, we should be grateful that he had piece of sanity left not to blindly follow those orders.

Acting is excellent by both principal actors, and other actors as well.

If you are a World War II buff this is a must see for you, but I strongly recommend that you see this film anyways, because it is just short of a masterpiece.
