It has been a long time since a film has been able to make me re-think human attributes and wonder how my upbringing, actions and life has been formed by historical events. I give this film 10 stars because I left with fresh insight. The characters were well developed, authentic and suitably cast. There were many poignant scenes juxtaposed against the peace and beauty of the woods, London and Vienna.
