Set in postwar Germany, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives to the war-ravaged city of Hamburg during a tough winter to meet with her husband and British colonel Lewis (Jason Clarke). As Lewis is tasked with rebuilding this derelict city, Rachel learns that they will now be living with the previous owners of the house, German widower Stefan (Alexander Skarsgård) and his anguished young daughter. Caught between loyalty and temptation, Rachael finds herself drawn towards the quiet intensity of Stefan, but will she succumb? Directed by James Kent.~Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
This movie didn't quite go where I thought it would, but was very well acted. Those of us who know of the real history or Germany after the war will enjoy this one, but it doesn't go very deep into the history. More of a love story in some ways.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great additions to our movie collection
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
My wife and I were not able to see this movie in our local movie theater and am happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and am looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
