With a glittering cast which includes Anthony Hopkins (The Silence Of The Lambs) and Donald Pleasance (Halloween), Arch Of Triumph is the tale of a Parisian romance unfolding on the cusp of World War II. Dr. Ravic (Hopkins) is a German citizen who has escaped the clutches of the Nazi's by fleeing to Paris. Not wanting to look conspicuous, the doctor disguises his true identity, and attempts to carry out his medical duties. However, one fateful night sees him come across Joan Madou (Lesley-Anne Down) as she attempts to kill herself by jumping from a bridge. Ravic prevents her from carrying out the act, and the couple soon begin a passionate romance. But both hide dark secrets from each other, leading to an explosive conclusion to this terse drama from director Waris Hussein.

 Complete opposite of a triumph

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (703)

There's an interesting story to be told of displaced Germans in Europe during the early years of World War II. This TV movie remake of a 1948 Ingrid Bergman-Charles Boyer film is emphatically not it. Hopkins plays a German doctor in Paris who hooks up with "actress" Down. If this is supposed to be a grand love story, you'd never know it by the incredibly listless performances given by the two stars, while the melodramatic ending is corny in the extreme.
