In 1919 Quedlinburg, Germany, a young woman named Anna is still mourning the death of her fiance, Frantz Hoffmeister, in the Great War while living with his equally devastated parents. One day, a mysterious Frenchman, Adrien Rivoire, comes to town both to pay his respects to Frantz's grave and to contact that soldier's parents. Although it is difficult for both sides with the bitterness of Germany's defeat, Adrian explains that he knew Frantz and gradually he wins Anna and the Hoffmeisters' hearts as he tries to connect with them. Unfortunately, Adrien and Anna discover the truth of his motives and things seem shattered for all. However, when Adrien leaves, Anna has her own struggles with the truth and her feelings until she sets out to find Adrien in France. With that, Anna has her own journey to make in more than one sense, even as they both realize that neither have easy answers to their complex personal conflicts with each other and the dead man linking them.

The movie was well directed and well acted. I like that the movie was not predictable and the dialogue was crisp. I also liked that the movie gave the audience a chance to look at the actual history of the Holocaust and what it was really like. The film portrayed both sides of the issue and I enjoyed the way the movie explored both sides. The acting in the movie was excellent and they did a great job of portraying the Nazis and the Soviets. I liked the way that the movie portrayed the battle between the two forces and how the war affected the world. The movie also portrayed the relationship between the characters and how it was portrayed. Overall, the movie was well directed and well acted. I would recommend the movie to anyone who enjoys a movie that is accurate and well done.

I really liked this movie. I saw it when I was a teenager, and I've watched it every since. It's beautifully shot and the score is fantastic. I really like this movie, it's not just about a battle, but also about the nature of man. I think it's also a great movie to have your friends over and watch it. It's one of the best war movies ever.

I really enjoyed the film, but was expecting something more, something more on a historical level, which it certainly is not. The film is very faithful to the book. It is very interesting and takes the time to let the story unfold. The film doesn't really "go" on and on about the Holocaust, but lets the characters go through their lives. I really liked the idea of the film. I also really liked how the film was based on the book, which I didn't really know before I saw the film. I think it is a good film, and I recommend it to all people. I just wish that the film was more in depth, and that the story was more on a historical level. I think it is very faithful to the book, and I hope that it will be made into a film, which will be more on the level of the book.

Rough and rough as it was, I was willing to let it slide a little because I know it was written by the same guy who wrote "The Red Shoes". As it turns out, the main character in "Rough" was a tough-as-nails old-timer who was just called to do the dirty work, and not in the romantic sense. He got on the wrong side of the local police chief, and was rounded up for the crime of speaking the truth. To add to the punishment, he's just left to sit and rot in the local jail, awaiting the day he might get his freedom. In a real-life twist of events, the old man makes a miraculous escape from the jail, and the rest of the movie is a bit of a thriller as he tries to make his way to the airport. In the meantime, the story gets a little more interesting. And the action scenes are good enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. There are a few flaws. The characters seem too rigid and one-dimensional, and their actions are predictable and somewhat unbelievable. There are also a few scenes that are somewhat stupid, such as when the old man gets out of the jail and meets the wife and daughter of the police chief. This one scene just seems out of place, and seems to be a cheap way to make the old man look heroic. And a couple of the characters have a tendency to start screaming, even when the situation is dire. But I still have to give the movie credit for being one of the few movies that keeps me guessing about what's going to happen next, and for being an interesting movie. The story was good enough to keep me watching, and the action scenes are just as good. The ending, I thought, was a bit too predictable, but it's a movie that I'd recommend.

This is a brilliant film about a boy who is sent to a military camp, where he gets mixed up with the most insane soldiers. This is not a film about the war, it is about a boy's journey. When the army asks for a boy to help them train, the boy goes on a journey to find out what he is and why he is there. The boy and the soldiers encounter a lot of cruelty and the war is something he does not want to see. He does not want to be a prisoner, he wants to go to the army, he wants to be a soldier, but he is not ready. This film is very beautiful, and very sad, but it is also a beautiful film about a boy's journey.

I liked this movie. I found it very "witty" and "original". I'm not a historian of WW2, but I found this film very entertaining. Some of the soldiers in the film spoke very directly to me. I found this film to be very realistic and I believe it was accurate to the book. The movie has a lot of history in it, but it's not an exact copy of the book. If you are a historian of the Battle of the Bulge, you will love this movie. It will show you the battle from many angles, and from many different points of view. It is very interesting. This is a great movie for a rainy day. I enjoyed it very much. My rating: 7/10

In many ways this film is a masterpiece, with performances that stand out from the rest, especially from Vincent Cassel. I'm sure the audience is left with the feeling of "Wow! This is truly something special". It is a beautiful film and you should go and watch it in the cinema, the choice is yours. And the production values are truly something to behold. The cinematography is magnificent and the sound is top notch. You feel like you're right there with the characters, in the middle of their turmoil. I'm sure that a lot of people will be disappointed with this film, but if you enjoy films with a very strong sense of realism then this is a film for you. If you like westerns, but you prefer something a bit more cerebral then you may be disappointed, but if you're looking for a film to simply have a good time then you should watch this film. I rate this film 7/10.

This film is definitely the work of a great director and writer. You have to have the attention of a great filmmaker to bring out the depth of an experience like this. The movie tells the story of the development of Nazi's in Czechoslovakia during the World War II. What's great about this movie is that it keeps you focused throughout the entire film. There are not many war movies that bring you the point of view of the people who fight, but this one does. You never know if it's from the soldiers' perspective or from the German's perspective, but it makes you aware of how it's a war and it's horrible. Overall, this is a great movie. It's more than just a war movie. It's a movie that will make you think about the events and make you feel like you're there. I give it an 8/10.

I watched this movie on the plane from Iceland to Amsterdam and it was a very beautiful movie, very well acted and I don't know if I would have enjoyed it the same way if I hadn't seen it on a plane. But the movie is a work of art, the acting and the production design is superb, the cinematography is exquisite. And the last scene was breathtaking. The movie is based on a true story and is based on the life of a German engineer who during the Nazi occupation of Holland in 1940, became a Christian, a pacifist and the leader of a resistance movement against the Nazi regime. The movie shows the man's devotion to his religious beliefs, his courage and his actions that brought him to the aid of Dutch citizens in the Netherlands. He was a man who dared to fight for his beliefs and was instrumental in the success of the resistance movement. The movie is a tribute to the man and it is a very moving movie. I would say that it is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

An Italian director, Pino Donaggio, with a strong background in cinema, has created a historical drama that can be called a love story. The story begins with the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and ends with the execution of his heir. The two lovers, who have lived together for several years, meet again in the service of their king. Ferenc Puskas (a talented actor), has lost his career, but is an Austrian official in the Prussian government. He tries to prevent a conspiracy against his king, and receives orders from his superiors to investigate the assassination of the Archduke. The result is a very interesting and intense drama, that gives us a taste of what could have been a very interesting film. It is well filmed, with great cinematography, with the best of camera movements and editing. The story is quite well done, and is not boring. The actors are very good, although the lovers are not very convincing. The film does not have any scene that is boring, and it is an interesting story that could have been a great film. I would give it a 7/10.

I didn't like the movie very much. It is slow, the acting is a little bit bad, and the scenery is quite interesting. But I can say that this is a good movie, it is not a bad movie, and it is interesting. And it has many elements from the history of the world. So it is a good movie. I recommend it.

I have just seen this film at the Venice Film Festival and it was really moving. The film was based on a true story of the Polish resistance during World War II. The film is a story of hope, loss and survival. The film is about the courage and determination of a group of Polish soldiers who found themselves in a terrible situation. They faced certain death with a terrible chance of being captured by the Germans. But they did not give up and fought for their country. The Polish resistance provided a model for all the resistance movements in Europe. The film has a great background score and the film is visually spectacular. I found the film very moving and interesting. I believe it is a very good film.

I'm not going to ruin it for you but I think this is the best film I've ever seen. It's just so much more than just a war movie. It's about the human spirit and how we can't do anything without it. It's about how we can't live without it and how it's a gift we have to give up. I'm sure you've heard the story of The Last Samurai. But this is a much deeper story about humanity. It's about how we have to give up some of our humanity to protect others. I was in awe. This is a great film. 10/10

I enjoyed this film. It is a good story and a very good film. I thought it was very well done and I liked the way the story was told. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Jeff Korman. The movie is not for the young and easily upset. I found the movie to be very disturbing but that does not mean it is bad. It was a good story and a good film.

This is a wonderful movie. I love the cinematography. It is so rich with color and it reminds me of the period. I especially loved the fact that the actors were talking in different accents so that you can't tell who is speaking. This is really what I love about this movie. If you haven't seen it, you should see it.

I saw this film in a cinema in Madrid, which was very exciting. It was not very long, but there were many good scenes, and I loved the sound and visual effects. This is a very special film and I will be very happy if it wins the Oscar. I liked the cast of actors, but I think that the character of Fortunato is not strong enough. I think that Fortunato would have been more interesting if there were more characters with this name. Also, I don't think that the ending is as good as I thought it was. Maybe it is better than the ending of the book, but I'm not sure. I also think that I like some of the characters more than others. Fortunato, although he is a bad man, is more interesting to me. In the end, I think that it is better to have the Spanish and the British, the Americans and the Germans in the movie, and to make it a mixture of three different countries.

Having seen The Great War at least a dozen times in the last 20 years, I was looking forward to seeing The War. It was obviously a long time since I had seen it. It has a good story. A war story. The main problem is that the story isn't very good. The story is about the characters, not about the war itself. There are a lot of scenes of scenes of war that are never shown again, or don't even appear in the movie. In fact, the entire movie seems like a rehearsal for a play. The war doesn't even get shown until the very end of the movie. It's like a test for the director to see if he can make a good movie. Well, there's a lot of good war movies out there, but this one is very weak. It seems like it was made in the 70s or 80s. I thought the music was awful. The acting is pretty good, but there are a lot of things I don't like about this movie. I didn't like the constant slow motion of the fighting, or the constant slow motion of the camera. I don't think this movie has anything to do with the war at all. The movie doesn't even say that the war is going on, but it doesn't say anything about it either. I also think that it was made with the sole purpose of telling a war story. I don't know if this movie is actually good or not, but I don't think it's good.

The film has a very British touch to it. A bit like the British director of The Living Daylights, Terry Gilliam, who created a surreal atmosphere in his film about the Revolutionary War. There is a realistic feel to this movie, despite the various plots that are going on. There are lots of characters in this movie and they are all well fleshed out. It is a movie with a lot of character development and it is well worth watching.

If you can get past the fact that the Nazis were not the good guys, and that the Germans had many atrocities in the camps, you will find this film quite interesting. It is well acted, well directed, and very moving. It is also well filmed, and there are a lot of things that are said that are shocking. But it's not for everyone, and I think some people won't like it, or even want to watch it. Some people may want to ignore it, but I think it's worth it, and if you watch it, you will be moved.

This is an amazing movie, the story is moving and the characters are perfect. The actors are excellent and the love story is great. The only thing that I didn't like was the music, it was very dissonant, it was not a good fit for the movie. The movie is about the struggle of the soldiers in WWI and the families. The only problem with this movie is the music. It makes the movie very boring.

One of the most dramatic movie I have ever seen. It's not about a war between two great nations, but about a war between two people who love each other very much. The movie is very well written, the actors are very good, and the direction is brilliant. A movie that I can watch every time it is on TV. Highly recommended. My rating 10/10.

It is hard to describe to anyone the experience I had in seeing this film. It is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. It has all the elements of a great film. From the music to the cinematography to the direction. This is a film that is a masterpiece that you must see. The only thing I would like to add to the summary is that the only way to describe this film is to describe it as a masterpiece. In my opinion, it is a masterpiece of the highest caliber. See it!

I first saw "Frantz" a few months ago and found it interesting and at the same time very interesting. After some time I watched the movie again and discovered that I was a bit disappointed. I thought that the movie was very interesting and exciting and it would be good to see it again. However, I have found that I did not enjoy the movie as much as I expected and that it is a bit slow. I think that the movie could have been a bit more exciting and exciting. In my opinion, the movie was good but not great. The movie is very interesting but not very interesting. It is a very good movie but not a great movie. I liked the movie and I recommend it to people who like movies about war and history of war. I do not recommend it to people who like movies about women and love. The movie is very interesting and very good but not great.

So let's get one thing out of the way. This film was not a masterpiece. The direction was uneven and the acting was not particularly good. And it wasn't terribly good either. But what the hell, let's give it a try. It had a different feel than other WWI films, and that's a good thing. There were some nice moments in this film, but that's not saying much. This was not a great movie. It had its moments, but it was pretty forgettable. It was a slow, dull film. The acting wasn't great, and there wasn't much else to it. The special effects were good, but it was more for the sake of the effects than anything else. Overall, the story was weak, the characters were weak, and the plot was weak. This is a movie that is better off not being seen. I can't recommend this film highly enough. It is certainly not the worst WWI film I have ever seen, but it is not very good either. It's definitely not one of my favorite films either. 7/10

I saw this movie and I found it to be an interesting study of history and how the various peoples dealt with the death of their own kind. The history of the movie is extremely accurate and the acting was superb. I also found the movie to be very moving and romantic. I'm not a very religious person, but I felt that the movie was very well done. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn more about how the peoples of the world responded to the death of their own kind. Overall, this movie was a great movie that should be viewed by all people.

Ridley Scott's first war film was the excellent Saving Private Ryan and this one is equally great. You get the sense that the writing of the script was based on real events and there is a real sense of tension as the story progresses. You feel the time that these people are in and feel the love that they are feeling for each other. I can't fault the film for the fact that it is based on actual events but that it is based on actual events is what makes the film so powerful and it's so good that it's very hard to not be moved by it. The cinematography is breathtaking and the lighting is so powerful that it really makes the film. The first part of the film is the best and has the best lines in the film. You can feel the intensity of the film as well as the love that is felt by the characters and you can see how they feel when they talk to each other. The last part of the film is not as strong as the first one but still has some great moments. The performances are fantastic and every actor makes you feel the emotion of the film. The one thing that I felt that was missing from this film was some kind of background score. I know that it was impossible to do but I think it would have made the film that much more powerful. I also felt that the movie could have been a bit longer. I felt that the film needed more time to build up the characters and it was a bit too slow in the beginning. But that's just my opinion. The characters in this film are really great and you really care for them. The best thing about this film is that you feel for them. They really are characters that you feel for and I think that that's what made this film so great.

I'm so glad I watched this film, I don't know how I missed it! I just saw the trailer, it looks really beautiful, I was looking forward to seeing this film, and to my surprise it was amazing. The story is not original but it has a unique style to it, you don't know what to expect but you know the story is about a woman who leaves her husband and moves to the city to find a new life. She ends up meeting some other women who also leave their husbands, and they are taken in by the city and it is a beautiful place. The story is really good, and it is really touching, and also a good drama, with a very good script. I really liked the music, and also the cinematography. It has a really beautiful look to it, the colours are very nice, it's just an awesome film. I loved the acting, it was great. It was so good that I even had tears in my eyes when the movie was over. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen, it is so good, I can't even describe it. I hope that they will make more movies like this, because this one is really great, and I will recommend this film to my friends. I really recommend this film, I hope you will also like it as much as I did. It is a really good film, and I really hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. This is a great movie, and I can't wait to see the other films they are going to make in the future.

I saw this movie yesterday and I liked it very much. It is a very realistic movie. I loved the character of František, and the scenery of Prague was really great. I also really liked the main characters, especially Pesto and František. Also, the story line was very good and very realistic. It was a very sad movie, but very beautiful. I think that this movie deserves more attention. It was very well done. I give this movie a 7/10.

Let me start by saying I don't understand the negative reviews. They are completely wrong. I understand they are from people who haven't seen the film, and are expecting a historical movie. But for those who haven't seen the film, and are expecting the same historical accuracy, you're not going to find it here. Not because there isn't any historical accuracy, but because this is a very different film than the historical "Pride and Prejudice". While this is a film that is extremely well made, it is not a historical drama, and is not supposed to be. It's about the emotions of the characters. It's about love, passion, and the fear of death. It's about the way they look at life, and how it is beautiful and terrifying. It's about hope, and what you can do with it. I loved this film, and I think it is the best film I have seen this year. I think it is perfect for everyone who loves a good historical drama, and doesn't have to worry about historical accuracy. This film is what I call a "feel good" film. I have seen this film several times, and I love it each time. I think that's the best way to describe it. I was not expecting the same from it, but I still really enjoyed it. The acting is great, the story is fantastic, and the music is incredible. The cinematography is beautiful, and the set design is amazing. The main actor is also very good, and so is the rest of the cast. I thought everyone was very good. They are all very talented actors. This is a great film, and I hope people will like it. I think it is going to be a huge success.

I liked this movie a lot. It is an excellent movie and shows the history of the Congo and its tribes. The way the movie was shot and the way the actors acted is very real and realistic. The movie does not go to the point of making us feel like we are in the Congo and we can really feel the people. The movie does not make us feel that the movie is about us and our history and our tribe. It makes us feel what the movie is about. The movie does not show us the evil and the evil that exists in the Congo and it is not the movie's idea. The movie shows the good and the good that exists in the Congo and it is a very good movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes history, action and drama.

I don't know where to begin with this review. It is an excellent movie. It shows the effects of war on the people, and the struggle of the Germans and the French to find a solution. The movie is beautifully shot, and the performances are very good. The cast is a great mix of actors from the war and civilians. The movie was filmed in Spain, France, and England. This movie is a must see, it shows the problems of war and the people's struggle for peace. I recommend this movie to everyone. The movie is a masterpiece.

I recently saw this movie for the first time. I was in awe of the acting and how it was handled. It's an amazing movie. The characters are all portrayed as human beings, not just the historical ones. The acting is amazing and the message is a bit more complex than you might think. The plot is a bit different from what you might expect, but I think that's a good thing. The movie is very emotional, but not overly so. It's just the way the characters are portrayed. There's no Hollywood cliche that you see in many war movies. You will love this movie.
