He's not alone with his input that makes this thriller so watchable. Omar Sharif, the always sinister Donald Pleasence, Christopher Plummer and Tom Courteney add quality to the production. Not forgetting Charles Gray, John Gregson and Nigel Stock with small parts, and the great French actor Philippe Noiret taking up the chase from Sharif's investigation into the murders after the war has ended.
Although the perpetrator becomes pretty well known to the audience fairly early, the film continues to enthrall as snippets of evidence are gathered long after the war has ended and the killer is chased down.
A riveting performance from an actor at his peak and although the film isn't rated highly I found it very entertaining. It's unusual for a film about a serial killer to be set in the war, and the prime suspects all being high ranking German officers
English subtitles, beautiful colour print throughout.
However, this is not a war film but a murder mystery centering around the crimes of a devious serial killer who must be one of three German generals. It is not a classical whodunit. The viewer soon realizes who is the murderer and what follows is a cat and mouse game between the suspect and the investigator full of twisted manipulations and set ups.
The acting is very solid throughout, but it is Peter O'Toole who owns the film. His performance as the demented General Tanz is masterful and chilling to the bone. An interesting film and definitely one worth watching, especially if you're a fan of O'Toole.
The DVD is good. Both picture and sound quality are perfectly fine and subtitles are available for those who may need them.
especially, give of their best. It was a great and unexpected pleasure for me when the great Harry Andrews made a brief but telling appearance: his name was not even mentioned amongst the credits!
