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

A main subplot of the movie is Lewis having to deal with protests, and underground resistance to Allied occupation. While there was naturally some social discontent, public resistance to the Allies in the West was virtually unheard of. Germany had spent the war years under strict iron rule from the Nazis; the idea of a holding a protest to the people of Hamburg would seem absurd and suicidal. 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
