In 1894, French Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young promising officer, is degraded for spying for Germany, wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment at Devil's Island. Among the witnesses to his humiliation is Georges Picquart, who is promoted to run the military counter-intelligence unit that tracked him down. But when Picquart discovers that secrets are still being handed over to the Germans, he is drawn into a dangerous labyrinth of deceit and corruption that threatens not just his honor but his life.Written by

Slow, calm, smart and intriguing. These are just some of the many adjectives that can be attached to this successful work, although it has some declining rhythm in the development of the narration, some flaws here and there, especially at the end, where the story needed a much more exploration; however, it remains a film with a unique and exemplary character. Polanski manages to tell an intrigued story, with a calm like that of the old sages and he manages it in no uncertain terms, without complex tools. Masterful, with true interpretations by an outstanding cast, above all the one signed by Jean Dujardin, who wears the signs of history on his face and body with his usual unique talent. At the end, it is another remarkable work by Polanski and so a successful work. Delicate.
