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.

Lieutenant Fontaine (François Leterrier) is no coward. As the story begi... read more

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?

"12.2. 2020 Robert Bresson's masterpiece is a completely honest, truthful, and incredibly accurate film about a member of the French Resistance and his escape from a Nazi prison. It's especially impressive how Bresson uses sound to create unique atmosphere. The main character has been sentenced to death and he knows that he is going to get killed any time possible if he doesn't manage to escape. The film presents an interesting and depressing moral dilemma: Helping other prisoners to escape may "

"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. François Leterrierin hahmo sen sijaan hääräilee suurimman osan ajasta yksin, ja eikä päähenkilön kontakti muihin hahmoihin ol"
