A French-Catholic art dealer during the Nazi Occupation makes a comfortable living by buying art work from his Jewish neighbors who are forced to sell their valuable collections at bargain prices. When he is mistaken for a missing Jew of the same name, he learns a bitter lesson about life in the other man's shoes. The film's depiction of the "outsider" parallels director Losey's position as an artist blacklisted during the McCarthy era."A thinking man's thriller. . .Enormously stimulating. . .Intensely fascinating." - Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News
