Storyline

1939. During a blinding snowstorm, a young man in the Polish forest rescues a young unconscious woman who lost her way, he who takes her back to his farmhouse. It is love at first sight for both. That love does not change when the two learn of the other. He is Oskar Koenig, a Nazi officer assigned to an undercover unit, the men in the unit acting as Polish farmers to discover and turn in any Polish resistant fighters. She is Rachel, a Jew, the daughter of a rabbi, and fiancée to her childhood friend Bernard. She thought she loved Bernard until she experienced what she knows is true love for Oskar. Oskar is only fighting in the war to please his father, Nazi General Martin Koenig. In reality, Oskar, a poet with a romantic spirit to match, does not believe in war or fighting, and does not believe in what the Nazis, and thus by association what he and his father are doing. Due to circumstances of the war, Oskar and Rachel become separated, with their love for each other still in tact. ... Written by Huggo

In despite of some flaws a good cinema film.
12 May 2009 | by adrian_c10See all my reviews

I liked the storytelling in this film. Also the plot twists were pleasant and although the end was predictable the storyline is captivating. The romance was realistic, but sometimes a little exaggerated. Rachel's story should be more developed.

The actors were good, the decor was brilliant and the cinematography also.

The flaws I've seen so far: Time errors? No way you can get a baby that fast. Factual error? In this movie some scenes go by too quickly without a good transition of time. Revealing mistakes: Crew equipment and mike visible in at least 3 shots.

In despite of some flaws a good cinema film.
