Academy Award winner Anthony Quinn stars with Virna Lisi as a simple Romanian who only wants to work his farm and live in peace with his wife--but who is caught in the whirlwind of war in The 25th Hour. At the outbreak of World War II, Johann Moritz (Quinn) is taken away to a German concentration camp after local police chief Nicolai Dobresco (Gregoire Aslan)--who covets Moritz' wife, Suzanna (Lisi)--falsely accuses Moritz of being Jewish. Moritz suffers as a prisoner of first the Germans, then the Russians and finally the Americans while Dobresco tries to take Mortiz' wife and farm in this biting satirical drama.
