      Jesús Fernández Santos El Pais (Spain) A bizarre melodrama. [Full Review in Spanish] Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Tony Mastroianni Cleveland Press The 25th Hour has all the surface characteristics of a great movie but its greatness is only skin deep. It nags rather than indicts. Oct 3, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      s r A victim of circumstance/exploitation in WW2 Romania leaves Quinn on an epic journey to try and get home to his beautiful wife and kids. The shots of Budapest in the 60s alone made it worth seeing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie, wouldn't call it happy or enjoyable, but very few WWII movies are. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Great examination of the effects of WW2 on civilians. It is the late-1930s. A man, Johann, lives with his wife and children in a small village in Romania. Their care-free existence is shattered soon after Romania allies with Nazi Germany and German soldiers start arriving in the small town. The local police chief, who is keen on Johann's wife and thus wants Johann out of the way, has him sent to a work camp for Jews. This sets in motion a series of tragicomic, Kafkaesque events... Emotional, funny (in a an often dark sort of way), sad, infuriating and thought-provoking story. So many themes and targets: the farcical irrational thinking of Nazis, especially with regard to race, the brutality and heavy-handedness of the Russians - one tyrannical regime replaced by another - and the buffoonery of the Americans. In the middle we have a simple man who has no control over his destiny, yet ends up in some amazing, and weird, situations. All through this he remains positive, and naive. A great story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Love it, I've got it on DVD, it was a great film and it was better than what I expected it to be, it was a great movie and it starred Anthony Quinn, Virna Lisi, Michael Redgrave and Serge Reggiani Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Bien entendu, on ne retrouve pas toute la puissance dramatique qu'insuffle V. Gheorghiu dans son livre. Toutefois, avec certains raccourcis, certaines coupes franches dans l'evocation, je ressors secoue de ce film. Si vous aussi, ca vous secoue, prenez garde si vous venez a lire le bouquin. Vous risqueriez d'etre bouleverse par sa charge emotionnelle...
