Goofs

The derelict tank the children pass in the forest is a post-WW2 manufactured Russian T-54/55 or T-62 tank. The Balkan cross painted on the turret is indicative of an early war paint scheme. Later in the war the 'lines' were thicker. See more »

Ethical challenges and compelling compassion
4 October 2012 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

I won't add to the reviews already written, but I want to comment on how this film moved me personally. I saw this film at the Vancouver International Film Festival and rated it "Excellent" for its stunning visual accomplishments, superb acting, its continuous suspense and mystery, and for the moral challenges it presents through its storyline. This is a film that will stay with you a long time after you have left the theater, even if your parents did not live through this era in Europe (as mine did). The film touches on so many human elements -some very conflicting- ranging from hope, compelling compassion, and the draw of sexuality, to revenge, murder and hatred. It brilliantly blends the social and the individual with it's backdrop of the socio-historical landscape of Germany right at the end of World War Two and how the power of that situation impacts on the lives of its protagonists. If ever there was an artful illustration of how one generation is affected by the actions or inactions of a previous generation, Lore excels in demonstrating that.
