A tale about Hitler's Germany in which a naive mechanic comes to symbolize the seductive appeal of the Nazi regime. Abel is a French orphan who believes he is a 'magical creature'.

Dividing Bar

An interesting, multi-layered film. Visually impressive and highly satisfying in that regard. The casting of Malkovich is problematic in that he speaks with a very distracting American accent but he is playing the role of a Frenchman. I would have preferred if this film had used German and French dialogue.
