I would like to insist of the importance of this movie that very little people know... This movie is so interesting because it is not only a very well done movie but because the subject is extremely important specially when we are seeing in what direction the world is going: an totalitarianism just at the corner of the street.
I saw this movie inside a Spanish program where 4 critics of cinema were debating about the movie they were presenting. The program was very known to people who love cinema and was named "Que grande es el cine" that means "How beautiful is cinema" or something like that.
One of the critics named, at one moment, the book of Sebastian Haffner
, Defying Hitler
! And that reminded me the extraordinary article written by Laura, Chaos and Consent: Working towards the Fuhrer.http://cassiopaea.org/2012/01/28/rerun-chaos-and-consent-working-towards-the-fuhrer/
This article was a bombshell in my life. The same day I read it I bought the book at Amazon.uk for one cent! Then when I read the book I wrote an article in my blog. I was astonished. I never read a book like this.
So this movie, extraordinary movie, talks about Nazism and how people were living under the Nazism. The subject also is how fraternity is important when living under this circumstance.
There is almost nothing about this movie on Youtube, too sad.
In this scene look at the girl, her expression while his father is telling her by memory a letter to his son. Look at the sobriety of the scene and also the noises, very important in this movie... (in this scene the father is suppose to be executed after that). The letter that the girl memorize talks about liberty and how one day Nazism will dissappear...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HShvEaJxmFU
