Brilliant ... but obviously a bit "heavy-going"!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Downfall Of Berlin - Anonyma [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Yes, it was a little heavy-going, but one can't expect anything less when the movie is all about portraying the lives of Berlin's women (and one woman in particular) in April/May 1945. I read the book "A Woman in Berlin" (Anonymous) A Woman in Berlin: Diary 20 April 1945 to 22 June 1945a year or two ago - after reading Anthony Beevor's great work "Berlin" Berlin: The Downfall 1945. I must say in both reading the book, and watching the movie, I was amazed at the resilience of the main character (anonymous) - how she accepted the situation and ensured she did what was required to reduce her exposure to being assaulted/raped any further. The movie is excellent ... very "authentic" with great attention to detail - I put it in the same class as "Downfall" - "hats off" to German film-making!
For those with an interest in WWII the DVD is definitely worth purchasing - it's a quality film!
