Storyline

Set in postwar Germany in 1946, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

Goofs

It seems rather incredulous that British officers in an occupational army in a defeated country under military rule took their wives with them. Nor does it seem credulous that people could catch taxis and passenger trains to head for Hamburg to Switzerland to some mountain chalet. There were surely other priorities. Nice story, not very real. See more »

Too predictable
7 March 2019 | by dongegpSee all my reviews

Photography and music are fantastic Lame story, designed for an easy tear. Wouldn't recommend it unless you have nothing else to do. Don't pay for it, wait for Netflix or Prime
