    Talky, stilted and obvious. Like watching a propaganda film instead of real characters involved in a real situation. In the actual case, Belis was acquitted. Not a film the Hebrew Hammer would carry in his trunk.

    This is "The Fixer" who didn't know he had courage...until courage was all he had left.

    Alan Bates plays this Jewish man who is falsely being accused of murder. Bates is great in this role.

    A Jewish man in anti-Semitic czarist Russia is struggling through life when he's arrested and imprisoned for the murder of a child, though he's obviously only guilty of being Jewish. Spending years in prison he desperately tries to maintain his dignity while slowly going insane. He's pardoned by the czar but refuses to leave prison as he doesn't want to be pardoned for a crime he didn't commit. Really, really good. Alan Bates is simply awesome in the lead. Hugely recommended.
