Valeria Bruni Tedeschi,
For summer vacation, Marc (Melki) and Béatrix (Tedeschi) take their two kids to the seaside house of Marc's youth, where their daughter takes up with a biker and their sons roams the beach with his best friend, who is in love with him. Things get steamier when Béatrix's lover Mathieu shows up, and Marc's old flame appears.
Berlin, 1940. Working class couple Otto and Anna Quangel receive the news that their only son has lost his life in the battlefield and decide to resist the Nazi regime in their very own way. Soon the Gestapo is hunting "the threat".
I am glad to be offered the chance to speak my voice about this movie, so that I can warn all IMDB users.
A bunch of mediocre actors working very poorly (alas, the worst one is Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, from my country Italy, I have to admit), and a screenplay that probably tries to imitate the story of Pollyanna make this movie a very good candidate for your next "all-trash-night" (when you and your friends eat mash-mellows and ice-cream, watching Glitter and Swept Away...and of course this very movie). The top (= bottom) is with no doubt the dialogues. Lines like "I feel like I have a stone on my heart", or "If God exists, I wonder why He lets children die" should be heard only if you are watching Dawson's Creek on TV (and you would deserve them), not a movie in a theatre. An advice for Vincent Perez: I think it's better being a so-and-so actor, rather than a disastrous director. Agree? Hope so.
Beyond any limit of human tolerance. To avoid at all costs.
