Among the witnesses to his humiliation is Georges Picquart, who is promoted to run the military counter-intelligence unit that tracked him down.

Critic Reviews for An Officer and a Spy (J'accuse)

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (11)

Becomes a starchy military procedural with a cavalcade of handsome cabs and handlebar moustaches.

September 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Effortlessly absorbing procedural cinema: With its proliferation of intercepted documents and carefully scrutinized handwriting samples, it opens an engrossing window on the top-secret workings of 19th century French intelligence.

It's going too far to say that it looks like an Auguste Renoir painting and plays like a Jean Renoir movie - but not by much.

September 1, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The film pours out its catharsis like concrete: you have to wait for it to set.

It's an absolute masterclass in how to make an historical film.

August 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

J'Accuse has something very real and urgent to say about the world we live in today. It's kind of a shame you'll probably never get to see it.
