It's the greatest myth of the German post-war era: The Amber Room. Since its disappearance in 1945 from Koenigsberg Castle, legions of treasure hunters have tried and failed to find the room. It is said that Physics genius, Albert Einstein hid the legendary Amber Room from the Nazis in the turmoil of the last days of the war. It bears a secret within its amber - in wrong hands, it could destroy mankind! Our adventurers, Eik, Katharina and Justus, come across an incredible trace and with the help of Einstein's great-granddaughter Mila, together they fight off a ruthless pharmaceutical magnate who spares no effort to get ahold of the Amber Room. From Europe's biggest monument in Leipzig, through the halls of Munich's German Museum, across the dunes of St. Peter-Ording, to the Nazi caves of the Berchtesgaden Alps. The adventurous hunt begins.

old recipes, same ingredients
2 January 2015 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

maybe the spices are different . but not in great measure. adventures, treasures, drops of history in fake frames, love, fights, honest explorer against the bad guys. it is strange to expect more. because the genre is clear, the actors far to be stars, the story predictable and the end defined by the title. so, a strange lesson about Amber Room , few beautiful landscapes and a man between women. the interesting part - the good intentions. but nothing more because it is not a good or bad film but only gift for the fans of Indiana Jones in different clones. its importance - maybe the desire of viewer to discover the truth about facts. that could be the high virtue. and the good point. but a sketch of script could not make miracles.
