One of two films released in 1989 and 1990 which had a storyline where a woman finds out that her father is a Nazi war criminal allegedly guilty of war crimes. The movies are the Australian film Father (1990) and this film. The two pictures are very similar in their storylines. See more »
Jessica Lange is absolutely great in her performance....... her conscience is torn between the desire to know the truth and, at the same time, to save her father from jail and moral discredit....... at the end of the movie she ends up discovering that her father is really guilty of the crimes he is accused of........ Jessica Lange is really a good, expressive and beautiful actress...... it is a pity she is seldom heard of, at least in Europe..... I hope I can still see her in the context of drama movies in which she is absolutely excellent..... Armin Mueller Stahl performs also very well in this movie drama, although his role is more limited than Lange's...........
