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.

not bad
23 January 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is a version of Indiana Jones and few drops of Da Vinci Code. the old adventure and solve of mysteries, confrontation against bad guys and terrible truth. nothing surprising. maybe nice. and this does "The Hunt for the Amber Room" as film for a precise target. its virtue - the smart and pleasant use of the old pieces. and this fact does it seductive. good looking actors who has not need to do a convincing performance, family and the temptation, a spoon of amnesia who could save many scenes, humor and historical references, Nazis and the run to the Amber Room secret detail. a show. nice for teenager. useful for the series of memories who evokes to the adults.
