Amazingly, director Costa-Gavras and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas navigate these perilous waters smoothly.
Jessica Lange received Best Actress Oscar nomination for Costa-Gavras' improbable father-daughter political melodrama.
...a stand-alone example of a full-bodied courtroom drama.
Failed to be affecting.
The script by Hollywood's controversial writer Joe Eszterhas is strictly edge of the seat material.
Armin Mueller Stahl is fantastic as the man who may or may not have had a despicable past. The reveal is the highlight of the film. Lange was Oscar nominated but she has done better.
Not sure how I came across this movie to put on my list but I am glad I did/ Armin Muller-Stahl plays as usual an excellent part of a father who is accused of WWII war crimes. Living in the United Sates he is faced with being sent back to Hungary. Jessica Lange plays the daughter who is a lawyer and has decided to defend her father. Why Jessica Lange is not listed in the cast on this page is beyond me, another Flixster goof? A twist at the end, that I will not give away, but that all can see coming after about the 1st hr. Even though Jessica was awarded a Oscar for her performance, I can't give more then 3 1/2 stars, that doesn't mean this film is not worth watching at least once. If your a WWII Buff you might rate it higher
Yet another boring 80s courtroom drama with wooden acting, which fails to make me care about the characters or bring any suspense to the case.
a little slow moving but fine acting and a good story make it worthwhile.
