It is a bit confusing, a bit slow for all the suspense it has and follows the French filmdom's rule of not ending happily - the end is always a compromise, not too sad but not a fairytale ending either.

Alain Delon who also starred in Le Cercle Rouge is the leading man, who is an art collecter/seller in Paris who is mistaken for a Jew and sent to prison camp during WW2. It is a charismatic movie, but I'd have prefered a different ending than the self-destructive one this one has.
