About the Movie

Veteran actor and two-time Oscar® winner Michael Caine stars with Tilda Swinton and Jeremy Northam in THE STATEMENT, a shocking and provoking thriller that delves into a fascinating chapter in modern events! An ambitious Judge (Swinton) and an exacting Colonel (Jeremy Northam) re-open the sixty-year-old case of Pierre Brossard (Michael Caine), an escaped Nazi collaborator accused of murdering seven Jews. Now an old man living a sheltered life within the Catholic Church, Brossard is also being trailed by mysterious hit men, determined to kill him before he's arrested. When the Church shuts out Brossard to protect their dirty secret, it's a race against time, the government, and the hit men to discover whether justice will prevail or revenge will be served!

Rotten: Somewhere in this disappointing political thriller was a superb character study trying to get out. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 9, 2004

Rotten: [A] tasteless hunt-the-war-criminal thriller. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Cut-and-dried morality play, with the saints played by Brit actors who can't even be bothered to speak with French accents. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008
