The Condemned of Altona [1962] [DVD]

Sophia Loren (actor)
Fredric March (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 86 min
Quality: Excellent widescreen

This is a darkly disturbing film of a Nazi war criminal, still wearing his German army uniform, who is hidden in his father's house, and led to believe that World War II is still going on. The ending of the movie is a bizarre mix of Fellini and Capote. Schell escapes his "prison" and walks around the streets only to be "shocked" that there is no destruction or war raging.

He ends up in a local theater and salutes an actor playing Hitler. I won't give the ending away, but it's a shocking surprise ala Play Dirty or To Live and Die in LA. The acting is great, the black and white film make the movie realistic and it captures a time in history which hopefully is gone for ever. An excellent film.

Note: this film contains part of a foreign TV channel logo in the picture. 16:9 high quality picture with English subtitles.
Price: £14.95
