Trivia

The airliner the Altmanns flew from Vienna to Cologne was a Douglas DC-3 that was substituted for a Junkers JU-52 airliner. There are only eight airworthy JU-52's left in the world out of 4,845 built. There are over 400 DC-3's still flying as of 2016. See more »

Goofs

When Maria and her husband leave fly from Austria, the aircraft used is a US-built Douglas DC3 'Dakota' whereas in reality it would have likely been a German Junkers Ju 52 aircraft of the period. See more »

Perfection
16 April 2015 | by (Detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

This movie is just flawless in any category; acting, cinematography, sound, locations, story flow. Helen Mirren is of course the star but everybody else involved were perfect also. Telling the young woman's life story, their hair-raising escape from Nazi occupation, and at the same time describing the red tape involved in trying to get back stolen family property by the Nazi's 50 years prior is just a stunning accomplishment. But, the icing on the cake, which they could have ignored, is how most of the population of Austria (and other European countries) colluded with the Nazi's.

This is such an incredible movie, it should be required screening in high schools, it should never be forgotten what happens when hate and prejudice team up with apathy. No graphic violence is required to get the message across - classy all the way.
