A partisan fighting with the Red Army in Germany comes across a grand, abandoned house, seemingly untouched by the devastation sweeping the country.
Exhausted, he falls asleep in the living room, but wakes to find a German patrol marching up the garden path.
His only hope is to pose as the house's owner, but how will he keep up the pretence when the real owner returns?Dazzling, dark and scorchingly violent, with the breakneck pace of a thriller, this timeless classic is a vivid depiction of what happens when the mask of decency is cast aside in the savagery of war.
