"After Hitler took over power in 1933, many Jewish artists were forced to leave Germany. Wilhelm Furtwängler chose to stay, serving as one of Germany's foremost cultural assets. Though never a member of the Party, Furtwängler was the recipient of government honors and appointments associated with Party members. However, the conductor often used his position and contacts to save hundreds of Jewish musicians from the concentration camp. When Major Steve Arnold (Harvey Keitel) is given the task of carrying out pre-trial investigations against Furtwängler, his aim is to prove that the conductor's artistic genius contributed to the Nazi propaganda machine and their destructive ideology. Conversely, Furtwängler insists he chose to stay to bring comfort to the German people with his music. Taking Sides is that rare film that demands the audience to take a position on an issue: in this case, the complicity or innocence of Wilhelm Furtwängler"--Container

Kurz nach Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs wird ein US-Major damit beauftragt, den berühmten Dirigenten Wilhelm Furtwängler wegen seiner vermeintlichen Vergangenheit als Nationalesozialist zu verhören. Während er seinen vorgefassten Schuldspruch zu bestätigen versucht, kristallisiert sich immer mehr die "Unschuld" des Künstlers heraus. István Szabó wirft mit seiner neuerlichen Sezierung eines Künstlerschicksals während der Nazi-Zeit viele Fragen auf, wobei er über weite Strecken durchaus überzeugend die Unmöglichkeit aufzeigt, eindeutig Partei zu ergreifen.
