So here it is, a lesson in why it’s so easy for someone like the Nazis to gain power.
I wouldn’t call it a textbook write-up of what you would expect. The plot moves slowly enough for there to be some eccentricities added, making the story richer.
It seems like each actor was given their role by a directing robot. “Here is your character’s name and their basic motivation. Beep boop.” This leads to a lot of cookie-cutting and predictable reactions.
I have to wonder: Are German school really this super-nice? It looked like they were attending a private university.
What music there was filled the air nicely. I don’t know if I agreed with the use of a saturated color palate in combination with added gain in some scenes, as it didn’t add much to the emotional impact of the film.
The film is pretty good. I’m not sure what you could use it for, other than a recreational watching among friends.
