Military Intelligence officer Major Grau (Omar Sharif) investigates the brutal murder of a Warsaw prostitute in this mystery set during World War II. Grau's only clue is that the murderer was wearing the uniform of a Nazi general. The three suspects include Gabler (Charles Gray), who fears his harridan wife more than anything, the icy General Tanz (Peter O'Toole), and the scheming, resourceful General Kahlenberge (Donald Pleasence). Grau is suspicious when he is taken off the case, but he does his own investigating when the suspects are gathered in Paris two years later. He enlists the help of Inspector Morand (Philippe Noiret), a resistance sympathizer with whom Grau forms an alliance. A side plot involving an affair with the general's daughter is thrown in for distaff interest.

I have been waiting for this movie to become available in DVD for over 15 years. It is an incredible movie with a unique plot. Not your typical WWII movie. Excellent acting.

An exciting and suspenseful mystery/war film.

Thank goodness this is FINALLY on DVD! I've sat on my VHS copy, hoping one day ... This, to me, is a very underrated performance piece by both O'Toole and Sharif. Donald Pleasence is also his usual consummate thespian self as one of the "heavy" suspects. But O'Toole's performance ... so highly notable because of the depth of the coldness with which he plays Gen. Tanz. A "must see" for fans of these two gentlemen - and everyone else, too!
