Summer 1944: The Allies march triumphantly to Paris, unaware that the German commanding general there has orders to reduce the city to “a field of rubble.”  A Swedish diplomat steals into German HQ with six hours to convince this career soldier to disobey such an unthinkable order. France’s greatest stage and screen actors (André Dussollier, Niels Arestrup) deliver formidable performances in this riveting, psychologically elaborate game of cat and mouse. D: Volker Schlöndorff, France, subtitled, 2014, 85m
