Filled with Raw Pain and Sadness
17 March 2021 | by Golden_HopeSee all my reviews

This movie is an incredibly personal look at what the war and these camps did to the families of the prisoners.

You can feel the pain pouring out of the screen when you watch it. It is incredibly raw and overwhelming.

Colette is a warm and incredibly brave woman and it reads amazing on the screen. You feel for her so much. The hurt and anger and pain that she feels is so agonising to watch as she walks around the ruins of that awful place. She is also one of them older people who you could sit and listen to for hours. She is so wise and soulful.

The filmmaking is ok. It doesn't take anything away but doesn't add a huge deal. I do think they gave a lot of information for people not informed on the subject which was a plus.

I would definitely watch this film but be warned it is heartbreaking.
