Beautiful river, beautiful movie.
27 October 2004 | by (Milwaukee, WI, USA) – See all my reviews

A beautiful movie about Vergangenheitsbewaeltigung, Donau flows gently yet inexorably towards its ending. As the characters move on and off a ship on the river, they explore the losses of their own pasts and learn to reconnect with them. The narrator explores the nature of time and the nature of the river, asking us to reexamine what we ourselves have left behind.

This is not a dark movie, nor a silly one. It is a movie that allows you to travel with it for a time, that will stick in your memory for weeks afterward. Rebic is kind enough to let you take what you want from the movie.

Also interesting is the variety of placement included. Although all the characters speak in German, one is Serbian, one Hungarian, one Romanian, and so on - and they have lovely accents. There are breathtaking shots of the shores and mountains in each country along the river, in particular some heartbreaking shots in the Balkan states. I find this especially relevant for people here who know so little about this region.
