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.

The direction of Lore is so cold and distant that moments that should make us cry out in agony elicit little more than a shrug.
*1.5/4*

"LORE has too many needless details. Some to set up emotions, scenes, or story, or to put you in place of the horrors of WWII, which is fine. But others that were just unnecessary. The love-hate relationship between the main characters could have made a great story but is completely wasted. Most of the time you are left wondering why the character would behave like this in some situations. However, this film could disappoint some viewers by not maintaining traditional story structure or temporal structure in terms of leaving significant things unsaid and unexplained."

A superb film: poignant and very hard to watch at times but all-embracing and profoundly symbolic of the way things must have been for the younger generation of Germans after WW2.

a bleak and foreboding coming of age drama set in Germany during the dying days of WWII--Ethical challenges and compelling compassion!!

This is a powerful film - from its chaotic nature to its saturated colors to its natural/unnatural dichotomies. If you look past the unanswered questions (and there are quite a few), you find a story of lost innocence, maturation, and discovered truths. Some of the imagery, because of the subject matter, is gruesome, which only makes the survival of the characters more engrossing.

It is commonly known that the whole world has a severe disdain for Nazis, especially for Hitler. As a result, there have been loads of films which show how foul the Nazis were. In contrast this film portrays the events from the perspective of loyal Nazis. Lore helps us to remember that those who supported Hitler were people as well, regular people like us, misguided though they may have been.

This was beautifully shot and looks very stylish which contrasts dramatically against the bleak storyline. It tells of the first days of a new Germany after the second world war but through the eyes of innocent children who have never fully grasped the horror of the regime their parents have supported. It's the aftermath of war but told from a very different perspective, if you can cope with the relentless bleakness of it then it's a good movie to catch.

Erilainen tarina natsien uhreista. Hyvät näyttelijät ja hienosti kuvattu.
