” This is undoubtedly Gründgens' by far best work as film director. It has a well-structured script which inspired following versions and a classically elegant style with judicious use of nature or long shots. Acting is also generally great though Hoppe is totally miscast.

One of the major Third Reich films, not to be missed”. Deutsche Filmothek
