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!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Somewhere in this disappointing political thriller was a superb character study trying to get out.
Rotten: [A] tasteless hunt-the-war-criminal thriller.
Rotten: Cut-and-dried morality play, with the saints played by Brit actors who can't even be bothered to speak with French accents.
Rotten: One more case study in how loads of taste, talent and accumulated filmmaking wisdom don't guarantee success.
