Intriguing war time picture on pare war Germany
28 April 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was shown at the NFT last night as part of a double bill featuring Felix Aylmer.This film is a rarity in that it attempts to show what life was like in pare war Germany.No similar film was made in the 30s due mainly to the censors refusal to approve any film with this proposed subject.Indeed the only other similar film "Pastor Hall" could not be made till the war had started. I would add that it is noticeable that the other 2 reviews come from viewings abroad.I have never seen this film before last night.I do not believe that it has ever been shown on TV and it certainly has not as far as i can remember been shown previously at the NFT. It is an intensely thought provoking film which had the audience not moving whilst the end credits were rolling.The irony of this film was that as bad as they showed the situation to be in Nazi Germany,the actuality was far worse.So that even the thuggish glee of the Gestapo in this film was far outdone by Himmler and his henchmen.If you ever get the chance to see this film make sure sure you don't miss it.
