In occupied France during the WWII, a German officer is murdered. The collaborationist Vichy government decides to pin the murder on six petty criminals. Loyal judges are called in to convict them as quickly as possible.
I''ve waited a long time to decide to watch that rare Gabin shot by Cayatte, and my "firm conviction" was right : lousy script, boring and absolutely unbelievable. Both Gabin and Loren are dull, not concerned by their characters, I now understand why this movie is so rare, because it is absurd, pushing too far a ridiculous situation. However, there is a short but important passage in which Gabin the judge explains the law N°353 about the "firm conviction", more important than prooves. But that's all.
