Overall very good movie
3 October 2016 | by quiltinnyouSee all my reviews

I agree with most of the posts and was impressed with the setting, huge number of extras used, and overall quality of the movie. But I was distracted by how too often their clothes were new and even at the end when they were running out they looked like they were in a fashion show. Also it was distracting that Lisa Eichhorn's eyebrows were finely plucked as if she would be concerned about looking like she was going to be in a fashion magazine. But that was the director's fault and whoever was in charge of makeup and costumes fault. I have seen this story done in other movies and think it is a very important message. My father fought in WWll and as a child I heard stories about the war and on TV there were always documentaries about it which had a great impression on me. It concerns me that in 2016 there seems to be a lot of fascism being supported.
