The genesis of violence
28 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

That perfect topic for a film made and played by Elie Chouraqui and Richard Berry. Or it could have been for Alexandre Arcady too. The tale of a young man who, one day, goes to a trip in Germany to visit a former Nazi labor camp, but not extermination although. And when visiting the museum besides the camp itself, he has the feeling to recognize his father, or a ringer of him, on a photo...The kind of topic already been done a dozen times before and speaking of Jewish people and holocaust. A movie made so that the audiences weep. But let's be fair, this horrible tragedy must not be forgotten, even if those stories may seem a little cheesy from time to time. I got a little bored, I admit. But it's worth seeing. And I was pleased to see here Jean Sorel and Michel Bouquet.
