A refreshing look at German-Israelian relationships
21 February 2014 | by allthatsaxSee all my reviews

Heroine makes journey to find herself - This summary is not the whole answer here, though, because the plot turns out to take on an interesting twist when woven in with the delicate issue of German-Israelian/ German-Jewish relationships. The main character's path takes a few expected turns, but also as many unexpected ones, which keeps it interesting to see the plot unfold. What's great about this carefully written piece is that it manages to take a refreshing, humorous approach towards the heavy political issue that hangs over the characters' heads like the sword of Damocles. A couple of pretty hearty jokes aimed at the German side work well in helping to ease the pressure. Outside of these moments, one feels like a quiet observer in an intimate setting, while watching the lively bunch, each person with their own idiosyncrasies and oddities, trying to find the appropriate way of dealing with each other in a situation where there's no protocol for it. All this is a pleasure to watch from a photographic point of view; with lovingly designed settings, carefully chosen framing and an interesting use of colors, the visualization becomes something of a metaphorical reflection of the actions taking place in the foreground. So I would recommend 'Hannah's Reise' to fans of romcoms with a twist as much as to those who enjoy movies with a political note (without being preachy or judgmental).
