Did You Know?


The melody Zev plays on the grand piano in Kurlander #4's house is "Isoldes Liebestod" composed by Wagner, Adolf Hitler's favorite composer. See more »


The security guard pulls the pistol out and asks if it's a Glock. The Glock design is very distinctive, and unique; so anyone who knows what a Glock is doesn't have to ask. Also, "Glock" is engraved on the slide. See more »

A wonder
5 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

I didn't have many expectations when I started watching the movie. I am particularly interested in WWII movies, and I have watched many movies that deal with the Nazi period. However, this one goes beyond that typical movie. We get to know a man with dementia trying to avenge the death of his family. We start off an interesting idea. The hour went by quickly, as we go into the depth of this revenge. However, it is the ending that takes it all. It left me speechless and at the same time, left me thinking, reflecting on every character and situation. If you're in doubt whether to watch it or not, let me advise you: watch it, you won't regret it. However, be ready to explore some deep thoughts afterward.
