when 'Liesel' and her brother are being taken to live with 'Hans' and
'Rosa Hubermann' their mother can no longer cope, sadly 'Liesel's'
brother dies before the journey ends.
When 'Liesel' attends her new school the children mock her because
she cannot read.
Her new 'Papa' 'Hans' sets about teaching his adopted daughter...
Some little while later the family are joined by a young man 'Max' a 'Jew'
who is hiding from the 'Nazi' authorities.
These are cruel times in 'Nazi Germany' 'Jews' are openly abused by
'party' members (of course this turned more sinister)
'Lieslel' befriends 'Max' however the family are taking a huge risk sheltering
him, 'Han's' gets 'Leisel' to promise not to tell anyone of their new guest.
To make ends meet 'Rosa' takes in washing and ironing work from home,
one day she sends 'Liesel' with the washing she does for the 'Burgermeister'
and his wife to their home and told to ensure she brings the payment back
home, when at the fine home she is invited in and, because she'd caught
a glance, was shown the library by the 'Burgermeister's' wife and invited to
start reading a book she'd seen.
However some while later when the master of the house see's 'Liesel' in his
home reading, he bans her, and ceases the washing/ironing work her mama
does for him.
'Liesel's' school pal 'Rudy' guesses that they have a guest in the 'Hubermann'
home, the conversation is overheard by 'bully' 'Frans' which adds to the risk
'Max' falls ill, 'Liesel' finds a way through the 'Burgemeister's library window
and borrows books to read to her sick friend.
Inevitably War reaches their small town all too soon.
(Because many cities in the U.K received massive loss of life and devastation,
we tend to forget what we dealt out in return, this film brings home the truth
that innocent lives were lost on both sides as portrayed in this film)
The film is enchanting, addictive, often heart-warming very moving and sometimes
sad, the story will almost certainly pull you in from the very beginning, and yes it
may well be an idea to have 'tissues' handy.
Superb performances from the cast members.
The picture and sound quality is excellent.
*A hidden truth.
*Bringing the Book Thief to life.
*An Inspirational history.
*Bringing the past to life.
*The legend and the music.
The worst thing was without doubt the "Allo Allo" German accents. Surely we have moved beyond the need to do that now.
