Labyrinth of Lies

An intelligent and arresting fact-based drama that plays like a more streamlined version of the high-minded, blunt-spoken, socially conscious “prestige pictures” made by Stanley Kramer
-Joe Leydon, Variety
The striking camerawork all suggest Ricciarelli is someone who, in association with his collaborators, meticulously prepares his shots for maximum visual or emotional impact.
-Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
Un film intelligent et salutaire qui se révèle d'une brûlante actualité.
-aVoir-aLire.com
Ce portrait d'une Allemagne plus encline à prospérer qu'à se souvenir est saisissant. Captivant, bouleversant.
-Première
Historiquement irréprochable, à la fois émouvant et digne.
-Le Monde

Synopsis

Frankfurt 1958: nobody wants to look back to the time of the National Socialist regime. Young prosecuting attorney Johann Radmann comes across some documents that help to initiate the trial against some members of the SS who served in Auschwitz. But both the horrors of the past and the hostility against his work bring Johann to the point of meltdown. It is nearly impossible for him to find his way through this maze; everybody seems to have been involved or guilty.
