Furst's terrain encompasses the passions of war and friendship. Jean Claude Casson is a cinematographer who is sidetracked by the actual drama of war. Where a film of espionage might be challenging, the real thing sets his stomach roiling. His comfortable world has darkened, smothering him in the sheer weariness of a clandestine existence in Occupied Paris. Langton sets a tone compatible with the 1940s, using a voice that it is reminiscent of newsreel reports of the era; flat and uncompromising, it underscores the dreariness of poverty and fear. Were it not for some excruciating mispronunciations, the result would be more than satisfactory. S.B.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
