"Eloquently reconciling and gracefully atmospheric...", 13 January 2014
Author: Sindre Kaspersen from Norway

German screenwriter, film professor, producer and director Margarethe Von Trotta's tenth feature film which she co-wrote with American screenwriter Pamela Katz, is inspired by real events which took place in Berlin, Germany in 1943 where Non-Jewish women opposed the deportation of their husbands. It premiered in Germany, was screened In competition at the 60th Venice Film Festival in 2003, in the German Cinema section at the 54th Berlin International Film Festival in 2004, was shot on locations in America and Germany and is a Germany-The Netherlands co-production which was produced by producers Kerstin Rancke, Richard Schöps, Henrik Meyer and Markus Zimmer. It tells the story about a 60-year-old German-Jewish woman named Ruth Weinstein whom is grieving the loss of her husband at her apartment in New York City, USA where she is accompanied by her daughter whom is about to marry a Jewish man from Nicaragua named Luis Marquez and her son whom is there with his pregnant wife and their adolescent daughter.

Distinctly and precisely directed by European filmmaker Margarethe Von Trotta, this quietly paced and somewhat fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from one of the female characters' viewpoint, draws a reflective and moving portrayal of an 8-year-old girl whom is looking for her mother named Miriam Süssmann and a 33-year-old pianist and Baroness named Lena Von Eschenbach Fischer whom is looking for her Jewish husband named Fabian Israel Fischer during WWII, and a daughter named Hannah whom after encountering an American woman named Rachel Rosenbauer starts investigating the history of her mother whom has turned Orthodox and silent after becoming a widow. While notable for its distinct, variegated and atmospheric milieu depictions, reverent cinematography by cinematographers Franz Rath and Jan Betke, production design by production designer Heike Bauersfeld, costume design by costume designer Ursula Eggert and use of sound, colors and light, this dialog-driven and narrative-driven story about mother-daughter relations, Aryan-Jewish marriages and German war crimes against German Jews, depicts several interrelated studies of character and contains a great and timely score by composer Loek Dikker.

This somewhat melodramatic, generational, at times romantic and historic drama from the early 2000s which is set in USA in the early 21st century and in the capital city of Germany during the Second World War in the early 20th century, which densely reconstructs a memorable protest which occurred at a street called Rosenstraße in Germany in the early 1940s and where a woman finds a person who might be one of the main reasons why she exists, is impelled and reinforced by its fragmented narrative structure, subtle character development, rhythmic continuity, heartrending flashback scenes, merging viewpoints, comment by Hannah : "We are getting a crash course in Jewish grief." and the efficiently understated acting performances by German actresses Katja Riemann, Maria Schrader, Doris Schade, Svea Lohde and German actors Jürgen Vogel and Martin Feifel. An eloquently reconciling and gracefully atmospheric character piece which gained, among other awards, the award for Best Cinematography Franz Rath at the 24th Bavarian Film Awards in 2003.
