With a few incongruencies as to time and location, this is a great film; superbly developed from beginning to end in a crescendo pace; magnificiently acted and with a direction that deserves a 10/10. Not having read the book (yet, but I will) my only gripes are some poor developement of the characters --some extra explanation of each one past should have been offered, like circumstances of individual tragedies, something that I guess the novel might fill but the film glosses over- thus the 8/10. A fuller story would have been really satifying. I don't understand the lower ratings; I suppose the reviewers expected something else and were disappointed. For me it's a must see film placed in a much ignored time frame. The ending is great too.

This was a very carefully crafted movie set in Hamburg in the immediate months after the end of the Second World War (a little known period). By careful use of different themes we had before us the aftermath of the devastation of war on many levels, effortlessly juxtaposing a damaged city with damaged characters.
After years of bitter war and effective propaganda we were shown, and without mercy, how both sides came to view the "other" as less than human and in the process became dehumanised to suffering on a near cataclysmic scale.
The movie played with four commonly assumed psychological realities; firstly that relationships rarely survive the loss of a child, secondly, the grieving process is a luxury and often the immediate need to carry on delays this process, thirdly no parent ever expects to bury their own child and lastly grief of all sorts numbs the soul to the needs of others.
This was a brilliantly styled movie that captured the pre-war Biedermeier period interiors and ravishing sets of knitwear seemingly from the hand of Coco herself. The camera succeeded in introducing a level of sensuality and faded decadence amongst the ruin and was masterfully achieved.
Rachel (Kiera Knightley), gave us a conflicted personality, torn by duty, grief and the gap between how life should had been and how life was due to the war. Her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), gave a masterfully suppressed performance, showing a man ripped asunder by war and grief, this was a class act and deeply affecting. Stephen (Alexander Skarsg?rd), dominated his scenes, the camera just loves this man's bone structure. The acting by the entire ensemble was first rate and why perhaps this movie left a lastly impression on the mind.
The end just did not sit well with the previously mentioned psychological backdrop but hey it was only the last three minutes and it did not ruin a wonderful evening.
This film has two major problems (or I would call it FLAWS):
1. Lack of character motivation, emotions & flows between each scenes.2. Casting Keira Knightley is a HUGE MISTAKE.
