Odiously portrayed German woman living in the States with her equally repulsive father, decides for no logical reason to reveal to a complete stranger the history of a family painting. Then in flash-backs we have an often confusing yarn of the misfortunes which arose from this artwork from the 1700's; the story is suddenly turned to 200 years ahead and we are subjected to the usual propaganda about Nazi's, persecution, the long walk to the concentration camps, etc etc. The lead actress is a complete ham and what I resent is how the movie attempts to lecture us for the zillioneth time on the evils of the world disguising their posturing as the history of a work of art. 1 out of 10.
