The children are wonderful natural actors and led by Rosendahl's great performance. While the basic idea is not new, the whole movie is a great visual experience. Does the ending justify the journey. Maybe...maybe not. I wanted more.

Raw, Intense, Ugly and Beautiful all at the same time. Wow!

Its such a refreshing thing to watch a ww2 film from the German perspective, a glimpse into the suffering that patriotic families experienced at the end of the war. Such moving performances.

a remarkable achievement in terms of screenwriting, cinematography...pretty much the whole filmmaking process in general. Saskia is an actress to watch.

One of the most thought provoking films i have seen in a long time. It has stayed with me for many weeks after seeing it.

A good watch for any WWII junkie. Don't usually see many stories/movies from that side of the war

This is a very very good movie, very solid performance for Saskia Rosendahl, doesn't seem like she's a newcomer. On the other hand, this movie is just not for me at this time in my life. Nevertheless a very good movie indeed just as the Critics (most of them) say.

Not easy to watch - quite intense, yet very slow. All the time you feel that something bad is just about to happen. Very good acting from very young people. Overall, however, I believe it's not worth the time.

Otro drama de la segunda guerra mundial, esta vez centrado en la huída de 5 hermanos hijos de soldados nazis tras la ocupación Rusa, Británica y Norteamericana. Es interesante ver cómo te muestran que Lore y sus hermanos so jóvenes bastante adoctrinados, y cómo, pese a tener evidencias del abuso nazi frente a sus ojos, son incapaces de cambiar, sino hasta el final. Interesante música de Max Richter.

Saskia Rosendahl gives an impressive performance in this disturbing, but compelling coming of age drama. The film is directed with confidence and boasts stunning cinematography. The soundtrack is fantastic, adding to the already incredible atmosphere that surrounds the film. I also really liked how the film doesn't spoon feed you, but isn't incredibly cryptic and only requires a little thought to figure out what was going on with the main character, Lore. Overall I really liked this, and would definitely recommend it.

The past is Powerful.

A different take on the impact of the Nazis.

Was kind of hoping they would all die... especially Lore.

Harrowing but best movie I have seen in a long time.

Lore is a powerful and important story that is let down by heavy handed acting and over precious cinematography. Basically I think this film tries far too hard for its own good. Set as World War II is ending we follow 5 siblings as they trek across Germany after their parents abandon them. It has its moments but the camera work is intrusive, distracting and over reaches trying for art but never truly achieves this

I wasn't particularly phased by this picture, be it by the acting, the characters, the cinematography, or the pacing. Not a really memorable movie.

"Child you smell like death."
Quando o cinema mergulha nas infindáveis histórias que se desenrolaram na desastrosa II Guerra Mundial, é frequente assistir a narrativas que tomam como ponto de vista as vivências das vítimas directas do Holocausto: judeus e soldados dos Aliados. No entanto, este Lore mostra-nos o drama de uma rapariga de 14 anos que, confrontada com a captura dos pais, uns crentes convictos da doutrina Nazi, é forçada a fugir com os seus quatro irmãos, procurando refúgio na casa da sua avó que vive no Norte da Alemanha.
O filme é interessante na medida em que não pinta a protagonista (Lore) com cores bonitas: ela é uma Nazi, tal como os seus pais. Tem um ódio infundado pelos Judeus.
Contudo, quando exposta às consequências dos actos nazis, Lore apercebe-se que o castigo perpétuo que sofre é a sua sina até aos fim dos seus dias. Aos poucos a sua mente abre-se, e a consequente vergonha arrasta-se na sua sombra.
No decorrer da jornada, um misterioso homem vestido de negro começa a perseguir Lore e os irmãos. Inicialmente com receio de que o homem seja uma ameaça, depressa Lore descobre no sujeito mais do que julgava.
Não contem com cenas de acção nem com as habituais exposições de destroços calamitosas. O filme passa-se sobretudo nas florestas alemãs e é, essencialmente, um drama sujo que explora o lado menos conhecido da derrota nazi.

Austria. Interesting perspective. End WW2, Nazis now being captured. Daughter of arrested SS officer parents must take siblings to a safe place - north to Grandma's. Lore's Nazi socialization makes her journey a dangerous one. On the way she sees the consequences.

Lentona, pero es entretenido el drama.
