Movie Info

Based on letters found 50 years after the end of World War II, LAST LETTERS FROM MONTE ROSA is the story of the final days of a doomed German army platoon waiting out the end of the war in Northern Italy. It's 1944 and Lieutenant Brüchner (Thomas Pohn) leads a German reserve defensive unit hemmed in by guerrilla attacks from Italian partisans and desperate for food supplies and reinforcements from Mussolini's remaining loyalists. Hungry, filthy, and demoralized, the Germans suffer constant threat from the local partisans and allied bombings almost daily. Yet when the Italian reinforcements of Lieutenant Gianini (Fabio Sartor) arrive, they are reluctant to fight against fellow Italians in a war that many of them already see as a lost cause. A sobering look at at the final days of those who fought on the wrong side of history, LAST LETTERS FROM MONTE ROSA explores the differences in the values, morals, and patriotism of a very different era. -- (C) Indie Screen

  • Ari Taub's film is a rich tale of moral complexity tinged with an invitingly surrealist air.
