“It’s a heady hall of mirrors that keeps revealing, or at least suggesting new depths and angles.”~The Film Stage
Aroview: A young woman in small-town Germany is mourning the death of her fiance in the wake of WWI, and forms an unexpected bond with an enigmatic and mysterious French veteran who she meets at her fiance's grave. A remake of Ernst Lubitsch's classic melodrama BROKEN LULLABY by prolific french director Francois Ozon.
5 stars (Exceptional) Stunningly well-made, full of tension & surprises. This is no ordinary "war movie". It's exceptionally beautiful, mostly in b&w and the acting is beyond outstanding, especially the subtlety of Paula Beer. Deeply moving. One of the best movies of 2016.~Sandy
