Past is ... done?
23 November 2020 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

When should we let go of the past? Now this movie may not be the one to watch if you think this is what it deals with! This is more about people trying to cover stuff up. Showing us the ugly side of people, who try to avoid certain things. Yes war is bad and bad stuff happen. But certain individuals relish in those situations and make things worse. Is Murer one of these individuals or just another guy, whom some want to take revenge on? As in him representing all Germans in a way.

There will be testimony after testimony ... some ridiculous questions and a lot of tough things to go through ... for the viewer but more importantly, those who had to endure those things in the first place. No one can fully understand what they lived with, how they coped with it .. the constant fear, the conditions and the torture (even if sometimes "only" psychological) ... only those who were there know. But do they remember everything correctly? The movie does try to give you some room to interpret and figure or feel for yourself ... there is drama and there is pain ... is there also a resolution/conclusion for the victims?
