Engrossing, difficult to watch, beautifully filmed this is a war story rarely told. The story of the losing side civilian population struggling to survive and find some safe connection to family and the past. The filmmaker does a great job of making the viewer feel the fear, pain, anxiety and deprivation of Lore and her siblings. The arrival of Thomas only adds to Lore's confusion and conflict. I can understand why it was an Academy Award submission.
This movie is outstanding! Caught it last night on Netflix based on the ratings of Lore on Rotten Tomatoes website. Netflix rating had a low score of which usually when we see a low star count we dont bother watching. Now Rotten Tomatoes had a score of 96% Tomatoes which states the movie is awesome based on real peoples opinions, so we watched it. To our surprise this film was remarkably put together, the acting was top notch, and the affect omg; so realistic. Lore is a sad film being that the eyes & the mind have to endure the thought of what mankind in that era had done, and become. It is a slow film working off of every detail, keeping you on your toes to watch; it is impossible to stop viewing it. It's a frightening film, knowing that things on both sides of the spectrum can be so easily misplaced within morality.
The only thing that was bad or upsetting about the film, is the way it ended. You'd have to see it to decide for yourself, But think it's brilliant work! Check out the trailer below.
