The difficult search for a traitor at home fifteen years after the war
30 December 2019 | by clanciaiSee all my reviews

This is an impressing chamber drama, as the entire action takes place in the same room, in one consecutive moment, as if the camera caught the very moment of the trial as it occurs. Danielle Darrieux has met with someone who has suggested that their resistance group was betrayed from the inside, so she collects all the members of the resistance group from the war after fifteen years to find out the truth about the betrayal. As they all more or less interrogate each other, they more often than not get caught up and stuck on the wrong tracks, but Danielle Darrieux is insistent and refuses to give up, although she was herself involved in the love intrigue that seems to have resulted in the betrayal. As the audience, you will yourself feel lost in this maze of relationship complications and paranoid suspicions, but in the end the sky will clear, and whether you like and accept the conclusion or not, the trial reaches a logical and definite end. You might agree with the priest, that after so many years everything should be forgiven and forgotten, especially if the disaster was triggered by misunderstandings of love, and not everyone will be satisfied by this film. It is exciting and intriguing enough though.
