Maria Altman sought to regain a world famous painting of her aunt plundered by the Nazis during World War II. She did so not just to regain what was rightfully hers, but also to obtain some measure of justice for the death, destruction, and massive art theft perpetrated by the Nazis.Written by

Aunt Adele's diamond necklace, which passed on to Maria Altmann upon her marriage, reportedly ended up decorating the neck of top Nazi Hermann Goering's wife. See more »
While Randol and Maria drive down Sunset Boulevard, a billboard for the 2014 film "Guardians of the Galaxy" appears visibly in the distance down the street while the time period of the scene is supposed to take place in 1999. See more »
The story is of course a big one, and its out to give you thrills, hate, joy and hope. Unfortunately Ryan Reynolds took away many of those. His acting was predictable, joyless and heartless and mostly: Not believable. Helen Mirren did her part just like expected, believable and she gave us all the emotions we requested and required to feel this movie as what it should be: A Reminder.
Yet; I gave it a 8 for a good display on the reaction of the 'Takers' and the new Generations of it. There is a big Gap between 'What is right', 'What should be right'. Forgetting is never a solution, yet the new Generations acquire the right to 'move on'. The Movie shows that 'moving on' is an Option, yet not a Solution.
Enjoy the movie. I just wish someone else played Ryan Reynolds part.
