An Excellent Performance of Martha Plimpton
21 April 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Brussels, in the Second World War, after the arrest of her parents, the Jewish Helene Moszkiewiez (Martha Plimpton) decides to fight against the Germans, using her knowledge of German language. She gets a job of translator in the Gestapo, and uses the information she gets to help the resistance forces and other Jews. Helene falls in love with Franz Bueller (Eric Stoltz), a collaborator of the Germans, who is also a member of the resistance. This good movie is very supported by the magnificent performance of Martha Plimpton. There are some flaws in the screenplay, basically because of the selection of Eric Stoltz for the role of Franz Bueller. Eric Stoltz does not speak German as Martha does, so in some parts of the story, the German officers speak in English with Franz, while they speak in German with Helene. But the story is very consistent, having a good direction and a great cast. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): `Um Fio de Esperança' (`A Slender Hope')
