Gotta Watch Twice
11 October 2016 | by chrisssoSee all my reviews

This is a great setting and subject matter for a film. The perspective is very unique and the story is human and compelling. The problem is that the film has a really confusing screenplay. In all honesty the story ... originally a book ... is just too complex for the screen and this was a big challenge for the Directors.

But don't let the complexity keep you from watching the film! More so consider watching a second time after you establish who is who and where they came from. This is a film that frames the Holocaust and Vienna very well and it will appeal to those who appreciate WW2 Holocaust genre.

7 of 10 ... takes a bump for bad screenplay ... could have been magnificent.
