Product description

Product Description

A bright Bavarian girl, Sonja (Lena Stolze), quickly becomes unpopular when she attempts to research an essay entitled 'My Town in the Third Reich'. The reprisals against her family force her to drop her project, but years later the adult Sonja decides to try again. Michael Verhoeven directs this look at modern German hypocrisy, based on the true story of Anja Rosmus.

Sonja lives in a small, religious and sleepy German town. Her life is happy and she is regarded well by her teachers and friends. However, one day she wins a European essay writing contest and a trip to Paris. After this she is determined to win the contest again, but the subject this time is 'My home town during the third Reich'. Sonja tries her hardest to find out what happened during the Nazi reign but locals are hostile and things soon turn nasty. Sonja the good girl is now the nasty girl.

This film is one of my favourite foreign films because it is hilarious, bold and full of frustration. The heroine, Sonja narrates the tale and is a character I can really identify with. She's very funny, and very cheeky and manages to somehow wittle the truth about her town's dealings with the 3rd Reich from the dusty and haughty inhabitants. The film is unusually made with some of the film sets being more like theatre sets with photographic backdrops and few props. Sonja's early memories are black and white which lends the film an atmospheric feel. It's beautifully acted and full of quirky touches, but most importantly whilst funny at the start the film soon developes into a grim story about the struggle to find the truth no matter what.

I thought this film was amazing because of its subtlety, humor and spirit. It was all about great story, direction and acting.

However, the DVD transfer is appalling. The 15/9 original format has been pan and scanned to 4/3, the colors are often muddy, and the subtitles can be unreadable. Please, please, please, will someone redo this transfer so it respects the original?

A German high school student, Sonja (Lena Stolze) investigates her town's NSDAP past. Of course this is not a subject that will ender her with the other residence. She may find that they were not so resistant. Let's face it that is a nasty thing for her to do.

The film is well paced and will have you investigating with her. Everyone speaks slow and clear enough that this film could be used in a class on learning German.

I really enjoyed this film, but the video quality is reminiscent of a VHS tape, despite being a DVD - perhaps it was transferred off one...

The film starts off very light heartedly with her childhood and then gets rather serious when she starts to investigates the town's forgotten past in the Nazi era. The film does a good job of focusing on the challenges that she faces in revealing the truth rather than focusing on the history, which we could already imagine.

If you've seen other films that deal with the struggle for de-Nazification, such as Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (also a very good film), this will be a refreshing change.

That's what this film is all about. It deals with the serious topic of the German past being covered up in a small German town, yet is very funny in parts. It portrays excellently a small-minded, easily swayed hypocritical small German community who get on your nerves as much as they do Sonya's (main character).Macabre and a film that really makes you think.

I really liked this film. But then I love foreign films. So refreshing to see a slice of real life instead of Hollywood. Good story and pace. Worth watching.
