Fantastic movie, with something to say! Based on a true story. Not easy to watch, even in our desensitized entertainment world of gore and horror, reality can still catch us up short and, hopefully, catch our emotions. Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Stella Skarsgaar do a fantastic job, as do the actors that play their younger selves. For a story based on real life the storytelling was well constructed and captivating. I give this a 9 (superb) out of 10.
An astonishing story about two former enemies in a lesser-known front of World War II
Firth is just perfect! There is something striking in this story, but it is also a lot of narrative chaos. I would like to read the book.
