The fascinating nature of this courtroom drama is framed within the horrific nature of the crimes it explores. The gravity and humanity that all the actors portray, including the German attorneys, elevates the film above a standard legal drama into a film that explores true themes of justice and mercy.

here is a film I thought I liked but as I though more about it the more I find out how little I liked it actually because it has no idea what it is trying to say. It really goes all over the place. Yes the performances are all good but only sells the poorly written material. It is poorly written because of the Spencer Tracy's character bizarre actions and views. He lets the defense ridicule witnesses for no good reason except in a Nazi's mind. then the film does not portray the prosecutor as positive but ends up siding with him at the end anyways even though it does not really state it well anyways. The film really is haphazard and needed some focus.
