A Man Escaped succeeds simply as the most tingly, tension-filled prison escape caper you'll ever see, but given that the prison in question is Nazi sadist Klaus Barbie's holding pen for condemned French resistance fighters, the story, which is based on true events, becomes a good vs. evil parable for the ages.

French Resistance activist Andre Devigny is imprisoned by the Nazis, and devotes his waking hours to planning an elaborate escape. Then, on the same day, he is condemned to death, and given a new cellmate. Should he kill him, or risk revealing his plans to someone who may be a Gestapo informer?

"25.4.18 A solid French film dealing with escaping from a Nazi prison camp. Becomes repetitive in parts and the Nazi are mostly fodder saying the same thing over and over again "stop talking"...okay I'll just move around here and pass this note. "

"9.1, PC Toi mieleen kesällä katsomani Le Troun, joka vetää pidemmän korren. Edellä mainitun tavoin A Man Escaped on samanlainen minimalistinen ja realistinen vankilapakokuvaus, ja tällä kentällä elokuva onkin onnistunut ja kiinnostava, mutta Le Troun keskittyminen useampaan vankiin ja näiden yhteistyöhön paon suorittamisessa iskee itselleni paremmin.
