Quotes

Wilhelm Grimm: I love you Marja- you're the only human being in the world that I love. The others I hate, all of them. Not only these village clowns who babble idiotically in the market square, but the German people too. They lost the war, not our army.

Flashback
3 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Not only because this movie was made almost 70 years ago (at the time of writing/watching it the first time), but also because of the structure of the movie. It may feel a bit dated (no pun intended) and the effects certainly are, but the story is what counts and that is pretty strong indeed.

The acting is more than good, though you can see where it does lead to most of the time. So while there won't be too many surprises, hopefully the drama itself and maybe a bit of the back-story of this movie will entice you. Don't be appalled by the court aspect of the movie, because very little of it actually plays in it.
