An Officer and a Spy (J'accuse) Reviews

  • Jun 11, 2020

    Tan interesante el tema como aburrida la película. El caso Dreyfus fue de suprema importancia para la justicia francesa, un atroz caso de antisemitismo en el interior del ejército francés, que conllevo a varios arrestos injustos. Por fortuna el coronel Georges Picquart y, más tarde, el escritor Émile Zola, con su artículo "J'accuse" lograron que se abriera el campo para aclarar el delito cometido en contra de Alfred Dreyfus. La película se hace lenta y ladrilluda, el guion no es bueno y los personajes carecen de pasión. Se vuelve tediosa y somnífera.

    It is indeed a masterwork and an excellent technical achievement. One can even say it's mathematically accurate in all the departments of moviemaking: such perfection can only be achieved by such experience which Polanski posseses. It's done so well, that even its story, trivial as it is, albeit important to tell, and which in other hands would probably end up being quite boring, is told with admirable suspense and is interesting to follow, even though it's very predictable, even to those who might not know the historical story.

    good all around movie about the famous dreyfous affair,the story of a military man falsely accused of treason mainly because he was a jew.tight script lead to claustrophobic bureaucratic atmopshere,production design perfectly captures the time,2 hours and 12 minutes flying by quickly as you are immediately absorbed by the hypocrisy and corruption of a pretty much whole nation.dark times for france..great cast led by the charismatic jean dujardin,in a seriously straight no-bulls..it performance worthy of an academy award nomination.winner of many cesars the movie was immediately controversial mainly because of its director roman polanski.still seeking us distribution,my opinion its not going to happen.and it's a shame,it's a pretty good movie,could have been big in us awards.

    MASTERFUL AND DELICATE / 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.

    È un film di metafore, di ambienti. Una narrazione magistrale.

    A movie that takes its time to tell a story where the truth eventually succeeded, a story we should learned from. Great direction. Dull and too slow at times
