In 1936, Stefan Zweig, the illustrious author of " 24 Hours of a Woman's Life" and "Letter from an Unknown Woman", leaves Austria for South America. Being Jewish and hating the inhumanity that prevails in Germany while threatening his native country, he has decided to escape the specter of Nazism. Brazil is his chosen country. He is immediately hailed at Rio de Janeiro's Jockey Club by the local jet set. But whereas expect him to take sides and to make a statement against Hitler and his clique, Zweig refuses to renounce his humanity and to indulge in over-simplification: he just cannot condemn Germany and its people. On the other hand, the great writer literally falls in love with Brazil and undertakes the writing of a new book about the country. Accompanied by Lotte, his second wife he explores different regions, including the most remote ones...

All the war in the background, all the political and social background is perfectly integrated to the action and for the viewer the story and the emotions are conveyed clearly. That's the point of art, the strong connection between the spectator and the story. But in my opinion, the film is too boring and not as good as it could have been. It's not good enough to be a true war film, nor a drama. The story is too much predictable, and the events are too long. The characters are not well developed, and I never felt they were as real as they could be. The film does not make you feel as if you are there. It leaves you with the feeling of some kind of surrealism. This is not a bad film, but it is not a great one either.

I guess I just don't like to watch films with too many characters, but I think this movie is brilliant. I am not a fan of most of the other films based on the "history of the Nazis" (which are usually very bad), but I still find this movie very enjoyable. I don't think I have ever been so moved by a movie before. The acting is very good. I really like the way the story is told. The different perspectives of different characters help to make the story more interesting. The cinematography is really well done. And last but not least, I think this movie deserves a better rating than it has received.

This is the first German film I've ever seen that I really liked. I have never really liked the way Germany was portrayed in the media. I think most of the films are extremely racist and so are the politicians. But this one was different. I'm glad to see a film that doesn't fall into the trap of the "Racist Germany" trope. It is based on a true story and shows what really happened. It is also very emotional, and the acting is very good. I was a little worried about the acting of the two boys in the film, but they were amazing. I would recommend this film to anyone.

I don't know why there are so many bad reviews about this movie. First of all, the movie is NOT a historical film, so that's fine. I think that the people who hate the movie are simply looking for a historical drama. The plot of the movie is very interesting and well thought. It is a true story, as far as I know. It tells about how a young woman in the 1800s tries to get her father back from his conscription in the war in America. A film that I had never heard of before. I never heard of it until I saw it and that's how I learned about it. It is so fascinating and well done. I am glad that there is this movie, and I hope that this movie will be the one to introduce me to this great story.

One thing that I've learned from reading other people's comments on this film is that they all seem to be either having a very bad day or a very good day. So, for me, watching this film was a very good experience. And I can't understand why it's so low rated. I think that it was the best movie of the year so far. This is not a horror movie. It's about people who have a duty to people who are suffering from some disease or mental illness and they try to help them out. The whole idea behind the film is very interesting and it is definitely worth watching. It's not a movie that you can just watch and feel great about it. You have to be patient and attentive to watch it. I strongly recommend it. My rating: 7.5/10

I'm not a big fan of the great French director Michel Hazanavicius. I think he has a very weak sense of direction and in the "X-Files" I even thought that he had a somewhat poor sense of humor. However, this movie is far from his worst work. He has a very unique vision in this movie. He's about an unsuccessful lawyer who is in love with his secretary and has to fight his way through the courtroom system to get her. But, of course, he does everything to get her, even if it means murdering his lover and then getting rid of his boss. This is the kind of movie that has a lot of philosophical questions raised about life and the meaning of life. I believe this movie is the most philosophical of all his works, and it is the only one that I have seen that is completely free of "Monty Python" jokes. The script is very clever, even though the characters are a bit too big for their roles. This is a movie that has a very strong message about the meaning of life, but is also funny in the most imaginative way. The acting is good, though some of the dialogue is a bit slow. The only problem with the movie is that it is a bit too long. The story is a bit to long and the movie does drag a bit, though it is not as long as most other movies. This movie is definitely worth seeing and it is one of the best movies I've seen.

This film is about the so-called Holocaust and the people that lived through the Holocaust. The film is a bit slow, but the historical events are fascinating. The casting is great, the actors are playing very true to their characters. The acting is very impressive and it seems like they were actually playing the people they were portraying. The soundtrack is also great. Overall, it is a really good film.

Director, Stefan Zweig (Glasnost) has once again proved his skill as a film-maker and producer, this time with a beautifully made movie about a controversial period in the history of the German nation. This movie depicts the crisis of a nation during the Nazi's rule, especially the fact that during the Cold War and the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe, Germany's society was divided into two halves, the East and the West. The East was, of course, dominated by the Nazis and the West, represented by the Soviets, was dominated by the East. The West, the East's first Communist government, was made up of the Social Democrats, Communists and other liberal parties. In the East, the Communists were in power and ruled the country. The East, dominated by the Communist Party, was not ready for a revolution, which was in the East's best interest, so it could not be led by a Communist. To make matters worse, the Communists, led by Joseph Stalin, took over the government and ruled the country. The East, which had been led by the Social Democrats, became a totalitarian state, with all rights, freedom, democracy, etc., denied to the people, and the people, led by the Communists, were led to the very end of their lives by being killed. The Communists' rule, in turn, led to the isolation of East Germany, which became a country without a country. That is the plot of the movie, and Zweig has done a very good job at showing the situation and portraying the consequences. We see the Communists' rule, led by Joseph Stalin, take over the entire East German government, the German Social Democrats, and they all began to suffer and die, in order to preserve the system, which was the only thing keeping them from their destruction. I must say that I was very impressed with the film. Zweig has been a great director, for a long time. His most recent film, for example, is about the Jewish Holocaust and his last film, for example, is about the Holocaust. That is not to say that Zweig doesn't have many other films in his collection, but the fact that he has directed a movie about the Holocaust makes it a great film to watch. There are some political and social elements in this film, but that is what makes it interesting and makes it a good film. This movie was made during the second world war, so the movie has a very strong connection to the history

I am a fan of the original film. I am also a fan of the "Lichtenberg" books. I was looking forward to seeing this film. I was not disappointed. The film is well done, the story is well told and the acting is excellent. The film has many memorable moments. I found myself smiling more than I had during the entire film. I found myself at the edge of my seat in many places. I felt I was part of the action, but I also felt that I was with the characters. The ending was not perfect, but it was satisfying. I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good story told in a way that the audience can relate to the characters. I hope to see more films from this director and his writers.

I found this movie to be very interesting. The cinematography was beautiful, the acting was good, and the plot was well-thought out. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in history, or just a movie that is entertaining. I would also recommend this movie to anyone who likes to learn about the history of Germany. Overall, I would give this movie an 8/10.

I have not seen this movie before and I am not really familiar with the story. This is a movie with an exceptional story and a great cast. I think this movie should be in the top 250. I have read that the movie has a lot of twists and turns and that it is not completely linear. Well, that is a good thing, I guess. I don't want to spoil the story so I will not give away the ending. There are a lot of great actors in this movie and the performances are very good. This is one of those movies that I have seen before and I can say that the acting is better than the first time. But the movie does not disappoint. The story is very good and the movie is full of scenes and characters that you will remember. The movie is very emotional and will make you think about what is going on in your life. The movie is not perfect. There is a bit of a slow pace at times and the movie sometimes does not flow well. But the story is very good and the actors are very good. Overall, I have to give this movie a 7/10. I think that it deserves to be in the top 250. I hope that more people will see this movie and learn something.

I think it is an excellent movie. It is a very interesting look at the history of the religious fervor that came with the birth of modern Europe. It is not perfect, however, because the movie is so short. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to know the history of the crusades. I think you should see this movie. It is more than enough for that.

I think the movie would have been a lot better if it was a documentary rather than a movie. It would have been much more interesting to see what it was like for the people in the village as opposed to what it was like for the people in the movie. This is an attempt to take a village and make it a movie. As a result, it is a pretty good movie. The acting is great. There is a lot of drama. The movie is worth seeing. If you can get past the subtitles, you will enjoy this movie. It is an attempt to do a movie on the 'Dahle' or 'Nord' people.

Gauging a successful film about the first world war, the outcome is usually inconclusive. Not this time. 'The most important event in human history' can be used as an axiom to define the time of the conflict, and the film's conclusion can be set to this conclusion. In this film, however, the focus is on the fates of three brothers who came together in a war-torn German village. The central focus of this film is the brotherly bond between the brothers, which is broken during a campaign in which one of them is seriously wounded. In an attempt to heal their hurt, the brothers head off to fight on different sides. The film is a masterpiece, and one of the most gripping depictions of the experience of war. It is a compelling and convincing portrayal of the war, both emotionally and historically. There are few war films to match it, and this is one of them. Not one of the best films of the year, but certainly one of the best of the year.

I was fortunate enough to see this film in a theater. I have to say that I was impressed by it. The film is based on a book, "The Truth About Auschwitz" by Andrzej Wajda. This book was written after he was liberated and he had the opportunity to see the camp for himself. It is a great book, and I think that this movie is a good adaptation of it. The movie is not a documentary, but rather a dramatization of events and people. This is the best way to tell a story. It is very hard to tell a story of this magnitude, especially when the facts are not in the hands of historians. The movie is very well made and the actors do a great job. I also liked the music. It fits very well with the movie. The movie is very entertaining and it shows the atrocities of the camp very well. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see the camp for themselves.

In the 1980s, Werner Herzog was a director who was determined to change the way the world sees things. This film is a documentary about the opening of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent separation of East and West Germany. The movie tells a simple story. In the documentary the main character is a former East German who has been living in East Germany for the past twenty years. He is trying to help his country as well as his fellow citizens to get through the transition to democracy and unification. The documentary is not entirely happy, but also tries to portray the attitude of the former East German who is trying to help his country. The actors are not particularly good, but are quite good and try to show the differences between East and West Germany. Overall, I like this movie. There is a lot of stuff I like in this movie, such as the transition between East and West Germany, the general idea of the movie and also the music of the movie. However, the story is quite simple. If you want to watch a movie that teaches you a lot, this is the movie for you. If you want to watch a movie that is entertaining, then I think you should not watch this movie.

A German movie about a German child's experience of war. The movie tells the story of a young boy who was born during the Second World War. He was born to a German mother who was killed in a concentration camp, and his father, a German soldier, was killed in action. The movie tells the story of the boy and his mother and the boy's father's experiences of war. The film was shot in Germany, and the German language is spoken in many scenes. The movie is an outstanding film about a great and tragic event in history. I highly recommend this film.

As much as I love the books, I was disappointed in the movie. I really thought that the film would be better. The book was great and I was looking forward to seeing the movie, however I was sorely disappointed. The acting is terrible, the story is horrible, and the action scenes are boring. I think that it would have been better if the movie had been more faithful to the books. It was very disappointing. If you haven't read the book, you should skip the movie and see the book first.

This is a very good film. The main problem of the film is that it is too long. The first part of the film is not the most important part. In the second part, everything gets going. However, the film has very good scenes and well acted. It also has a great idea. The idea is not new but it is well used and the movie is very long. I think this movie is worth watching. The acting is very good, the story is good, and the story is very good. If you are tired of those boring movies, then this one is very good. I think you should watch it if you like good movies.

As a German speaking movie, I have always found this film a bit of a disappointment. The setting of the early 1900s in Austria was a perfect setting for a serious drama. The acting of the main characters was mediocre. The filmmakers seemed to be trying to do a documentary of the world's most famous composer, even though he was in his 80's. The narration was too dramatic for me. The costumes and art direction were good, but they were very superficial. The musical score was good, but it lacked depth. This film is probably more about the composer's personal life than about his work. It's not a movie for everyone, though. I believe that the film could have been made better with a director who could have made it a more serious film. I would recommend this film to everyone. I rate it 7/10.

The people of France, they are the heroes of this movie, not just the ones who stand up and give you the "F" word, but everyone else. Everyone in this movie is important, and the viewer feels a little guilty when he doesn't care for some of the people in the movie. It makes you feel more connected to the movie, and therefore, more involved with the story. All the characters are important and you feel sorry for the ones who don't have a lot of time to live. But the truth is that you can only see the movie through the eyes of the characters. You don't see all of the great actors in the movie, you see a slice of life in a small town in France. You see the people, and you can't help but love them. The movie is very beautiful, and the characters are all so well drawn that you can't help but like them, even though you're not a historian or a historical expert. It's a movie that you can watch over and over again, and it will become a part of you.

The movie was well acted. I liked the characters. I enjoyed the movie. I felt that the movie was a good example of how to make a film.

I saw the movie on the big screen and was very impressed. It is a very well made movie and I was very impressed with the performances. The story is very good and I was impressed by the way the director showed the events that happened in the beginning. I think the story is very important and the movie shows the situation very well. It is a very good movie that I would recommend to everyone.

The early part of the 20th century saw a great amount of censorship of the cinema, as it was banned in many countries. In the United States, the movie industry was "stifled" by the courts. Here, in the 1950's, "The Winter Wonderland" is one of the few movies to have escaped this fate. The movie is based on the novel "My Story" by the German author Anton Chekhov, who died in 1885. The film is set in a small town in the middle of the Soviet Union, where the Russians had a hard time controlling the locals, and where the German writer is forced to flee his homeland. The movie starts with a narrator (who is played by one of the main actors) describing the events that led to Chekhov's writing, and the period in which he lived in Russia. He makes a few points about the book and its influence on Russian cinema, before the movie ends. The cast is pretty impressive, with the notable names being Max von Sydow, Klaus Maria Brandauer and Maximilian Schell. The movie is well-done and takes the viewer on a journey from the end of the first world war, through the Stalin years, and the end of the USSR. This is a well-crafted movie, with some scenes that are very well done. The acting is great, as it is, in a way, what makes this movie a good movie, if you like movies with good acting. If you are looking for a good movie about the 20th century, you should definitely watch this movie.

I just watched this movie, with the intention of not liking it. I watched it and after 20 minutes, I still didn't like it. I am an historian and the main character of the movie is pretty much a historical character. So, I don't like to see historical stuff in a movie, because they always put too much emphasis on the historical stuff. If you are an historian, you would know that. And if you are an action-adventure movie fan, you would know that. The plot is very complex, and you have to have a high level of interest and comprehension to understand it. And the movie contains lots of historical references and facts, which make it more interesting to understand it. But the thing is that the movie also contains lots of modern references. So, the movie is very overrated. I think that the movie is more about propaganda than about history. I think that the movie is too boring and too slow, and I don't like it.

The 'The Descent' is a true story about a group of French climbers who spend a couple of weeks at the top of the Matterhorn. Some critics have said that the movie is boring, I am not a fan of these kinds of films but I do think it's worth seeing, because it shows the struggle to survive in the wild. The characters in the film are well developed and the main actors have done a good job in the film. The movie has a well thought-out story that moves at a steady pace and you can't help but feel that you are watching real life. The soundtrack is very good and it fits well with the rest of the film. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): 'O Descento' ('The Descent')

It is difficult to review the film without spoiling it, so I will just say that I enjoyed it. It is a film about history, and the artistic aspects of it. I thought the acting was very good. The effects were great, and the story was engaging. The relationship between the characters was very real and felt very real. If you want a great movie, I would definitely recommend this one.

I am not going to tell you how much I liked this movie, because you will have to see it yourself. But I was a little disappointed with the ending, which I don't know if the director was trying to give a tragic ending or just a sad ending. But there was a reason for it, so I guess I'll let you watch the movie and figure it out. However, I have to say that I was surprised that the director didn't include any erotic scenes at all, which I am not a fan of either. And I thought that the way that the movie ended would have been even more dramatic if they had had a lot of sex. Overall, this movie is a good example of what a German film should be, and I recommend it for the entire family. (and I'm not the type to let my kids watch all the erotic stuff in a movie)

I can't understand why people are so bad at understanding this movie. I don't think it is a very good movie, but it is definitely not a bad movie. It is an interesting movie, with a lot of interesting ideas. It is also very different from the rest of the movies in the genre. It is not just a movie about a girl who lost her father, and became a politician. It is a movie about a girl who lost her father, and became a politician. I think the idea of a politician being a very important person in her family is a very important idea in the movie. It is very interesting. The characters are very interesting, and you care about them. The actors are very good, and the movie is very interesting. I recommend this movie to everyone, and I think everyone should see this movie. It is very interesting, and I think you should see it. It is not a bad movie, it is an interesting movie, and it is very interesting.

This is a well-made movie, though it's not the greatest. The story is very well done and the acting is very good. It's a good movie, but it's not a great movie. I liked it, but it's not the best movie ever made.

This is a great movie about a long lost family, and a family of different faiths. The director, Werner Herzog, has done a wonderful job of showing the whole story from the point of view of the father. The movie is beautifully shot. The cast is great, and the acting is superb. The most impressive thing about the movie is the soundtrack. It is really a wonderful soundtrack, with many different kinds of music. The movie has a wonderful message about how the family is important. The movie is a must see for anyone who loves a good story, and a good soundtrack.
