I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It is beautiful to look at, meaningful, and captivating. The scenery and visuals are stunning. The actors and creators of the film did a splendid job of relaying this story of love despite suspicions of differences too deep to accept.
The film has at times a dream-like quality. The characters may be a bit exaggerated, but this is the deliberate style of the film. During the Nazi era, a person's character must have become very well defined as the horror of what was happening became clear.
As a non-Spanish speaker and also not having lived at that time I am at a slight disadvantage in reviewing a film like this, but my experience of it was an exceptional one.
