I Accuse (Ich Klage An)

I Accuse is a classic and controversial German film from 1941 about euthanasia, or mercy killing. A doctor admits to administering a fatal overdose to his incurably ill wife and is judged in court — and in the public forum. The subliminal message many read into it, that it justified the Nazis taking the lives of handicapped people, was unintended. The Director argued that this film is “a document of humanity in an inhuman time.” Rarely seen, this gentle and loving movie deals with a subject as controversial then as it is now.
