I like how it doesn't really focus on any one character and it takes up a serious issue without getting too preachy. The rest is very solid and makes this all in all great :)
Aside from being a decent noir, this is notable for its early and tactful handling of the subject of antisemitism (and bigotry in general), as well as the issue of soldiers' malaise after the war ended. Solid work by all involved.
It has all the elements of a great crime noir but somehow it just doesn't add up. Still, worth watching for all of its elements as well as the great acting.
