jan onderwater from Amsterdam, The Netherlands
3 June 1999
Below average and improbable Wiedergutmachungsdrama concerning a young
German woman who falls in love with a French WW2 soldier by way of his
(!). Master of mediocrity Jacobs' straight on open and shut direction does
not make it very convincing; cinematography is not faultless. The script
adds too many melodramatic tricks that do not work, and I hate films where
kind-hearted priests and the like act as the Deus ex machina.
I cannot imagine that this film contributed anything to a better
understanding between the French and the Germans.
