Trivia

The character of Simon Goldberg was based on diarist and professor Victor Klemperer. See more »

Goofs

Simon Goldberg, the Jewish character based on the historical Viktor Klemperer, lives with his non-Jewish wife in an apartment that they have for their own. By early 1945, the real Viktor Klemperer, a Jew who had converted to Protestantism, lived with his non-Jewish wife Eva perched in a so-called "Judenhaus," a house where numerous Jewish families had been put up and kept with only basic provisions. For years, families like that of Viktor Klemperer had been isolated from the non-Jewish German population, and it would have been unthinkable for the wife of a Jewish German to work at a hospital.

Excellent cast in a convincing anti-war drama
9 March 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A fictional love drama set on the background of Dresden at the end of World War II achieves to illuminate the complexity of human characters under the life-threatening terror of the Nazi-regime and the war.

The excellent cast with Felicitas Woll, John Light and Benjamin Sadler as main figures involve the viewer into a very personal drama. As the screenplay avoids black-and-white-painting, multi-layered characters invite the viewer to a differentiating point of view.

Realistic fire-scenes, carefully computer-animated flying-sequences and the participation of both British and German historians in pre-production contribute to a gripping movie about a sensitive point in German history.
