The duality of human nature
11 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a fantastic film, with exceptional music. It is frustrating that I cannot find a copy of it ANYWHERE!!.

I have a memory problem, but I can remember this film so it must have been great.

WARNING: The scenes of torture by and SS officer are confronting. It is difficult to describe without spoiling it for new viewers.

Spoiler: An "orphaned", talented violin-playing child is spotted in a park by a NAZI SS Officer. (first 'coincidence')

Officer invites him to practice in his home (second coincidence).

In the cellar of his home officer is torturing prisoners (third coincidence)

Who do you think one of his torture subjects is? (fourth co-incidence).

It is a remarkable film - the acting, the film score, the compactness of the whole film.

Alas as a 'film for television' I cannot get a copy of it. If ANYONE in the world has a reasonable copy, I'd really love to see it again.

Maybe we could start a "twilight of the wolves" society ((Le crepuscule de loups).
