The House that Fritz build/smelled
17 May 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Alright, I haven't read the book nor was I aware of the story itself before watching the movie. And I also just got an "omg" moment! I did not know what great job the makeup department had done until I saw the leading man - how he actually looks like. Also very brave going ugly like that. For women it may be even bolder (what with everyone being obsessed about how they look, more than they are themselves), but it's still quite out there.

Having said all that, it is not just the makeup department that does an excellent job. The movie works on so many levels. If you can stomache the amount of violence and despicable acts portrayed in this that is of course. And I know that the "defense" of it's just a movie does not work entirely, since this is based on real life. But it is a depiction of back then and to hold back would have been a disservice to history and what happened. You can choose not to watch, it does not turn back the hands of time as they say.

Still the lead character is obviously very despicable - and that is putting it mildly. So watching this is quite a task - understandable if this is way too much for some viewers who might vote (or already have voted) less favourably than I have ...
