Storyline

It is June 29th 1943. In a confined prison cell, Alexander, a young Nazi officer is awaiting his new prisoner he has been tasked with watching over until their execution. His prisoner is Willem, a Dutch resistance fighter, who has been convicted of blowing up a building that held records of local Jewish residents the Nazi army have been pursuing, in an attempt to fight back against the ever-growing rise of fascism. Willem is also openly homosexual, in a time when people were persecuted for such lifestyles. As Willem and Alexander sit alone in the cell, the former attempts to engage in conversation with his captor, who initially remains quiet. But over the course of three days, not only do they begin to converse, but they begin to have a profound emotional impact on one another. When hope is all you have left, watch it change the world.

when sound design destroys a film
21 March 2021 | by ravenmptgSee all my reviews

When you cannot hear the dialogue because there is a continuous drone of meaningless sound that purports to be something dramatic, it destroys the entire film. this film would have been better with no interference from this sound designer.

the acting appears to be very good and I like the story, but it was hard to allow myself to really appreciate with the continual annoyance of the unnecessary sound.

the reason I've giving this film three stars is completely because of the sound design
