Storyline

Edith Han was an outspoken young woman studying law in Vienna when the Gestapo forced Edith and her mother into a Jewish ghetto. Edith was taken away to a labor camp, and when she returned home months later, she found her mother had been deported. Knowing she would become a hunted woman, Edith went underground, scavenging for food and searching each night for a safe place to sleep. Her boyfriend, Pepi, proved too terrified to help her, but a Christian friend was not. Using the woman's identity papers, Edith fled to Munich. There she met Werner Vetter, a Nazi Party member who fell in love with her. Despite her protests and even her eventual confession that she was Jewish, he married her and kept her identity a secret. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Incredibly boring. Couldn't get through more than 20 minutes
21 March 2017 | by dirtpheliaSee all my reviews

I tried! I tried 10 minutes and it was boring as can be, so I skipped ahead a little more and it was still boring. Skipped again and it was just as boring. This thing is narrated in one tone, one I've become familiar with from watching crappy documentaries like this one, a tone that tries to tug at your heart strings, so that instead of listening to the actual narration, I kept interpreting what Sarandon was trying to say: "This is so sad. We're not even going to make an effort to make this interesting because Holocaust! Who cares what the content of my narration is, just be sad because Holocaust!"

The story itself seems interesting but I'll see if I can find a book about it rather than waste another hour and ten minutes of my life on this.
