Tautly paced but ideologically skewed cat-and-mouse thriller about a French former Nazi collaborator (Michael Caine) who is shielded from being brought to trial by a shadowy network of high-ranking members of the French government and the Catholic Church. Norman Jewison's loosely fact-based tale derails from its serious subject matter into commercial melodrama, while portraying the Catholic hierarchy as more concerned with the church's self-interest than exposing injustice. Sporadic violence and anti-clerical characterizations. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
