good production and decoration, but story is not believable
6 January 2014 | by (Pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

Excellent cinematography and rendition of interiors. Was particularly impressed with the sound of doors closing, the same clunky noise of wood doors. Also, the period clothing recreation is excellent. The motor vehicles, train, and airplane transport rendition are excellent. In this regard, the film is definitely worth watching.

But the story, colorful it is, is not believable. It has a nice happy ending, and somewhat predictable, but in reality, such a story would not have happened.

In the theme of impersonation during that period, the film "Europa, Europa" is more believable.
