The film, 'The Spring Of Life', brings to light a little-known operation of the Nazi SS, started just before the outbreak of World War II. Through the careful selection and re-education of young women, it was the Nazi's mad dream to create an Aryan 'master race'. Written by
Gretka, a beautiful girl from Checkslovakia, is selected to an elite school of Nazis to continue the pure arian race. I will not tell more so that I avoid spoiling the movie, although the idea of this film is not in the surprising events in the plot. Acting is nothing super, but works well with the plot. Cinematography is done in a way that is quite common to modern dramas in Europe, realistic colours. Not very easy to watch, so I cannot recommend this as a light sunday afternoon flick to cheer you up. Nevertheless, for serious drama fans who are not yet fed up with all the depressing films about WW2, this is worth watching.
