Italian comedy-drama starring Sordi as a successful businessman whose destiny leads him to a secluded Swiss chalet where his life is put on trial by a group of retired law professionals. The men assemble to analyze Sordi's rise to power and his increasingly immoral behavior as he attained success, and the warped perceptions of right and wrong he has adopted to remain successful. The film combines humor with compelling drama, which sustains viewer interest until the verdict is delivered. The irony throughout the film is typical of the oblique way Durrenmatt, the Swiss master of stagecraft, looks at the world &#151 and, in particular, the helplessness of the individual in that world. The great French actor Brasseur, whose career began in the silent movie days, died near the end of the production's filming, at 69 years of age.
