Creative editing of a predicable but creative screenplay
28 January 2020 | by decodoppler-631-249080See all my reviews

Watched on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Quite the emotional tug. Stitching the movie's three timelines together was interesting, and in parts the dialog -- spartan -- was excellent. The so-called shocker ending was rather ad hoc, but I would recommend this movie.
