Movie Info

After the death of her father, Hannah (Maria Schrader) observes her widowed mother, Ruth (Jutta Lampe), partaking in Orthodox Jewish mourning rituals. Ruth refuses to answer Hannah's questions about why she's doing this, so Hannah goes to Germany to learn about her parents' past during World War II. She meets the elderly Lena (Doris Schade), who tells Hannah about Ruth's role in the Rosenstrasse protest of 1943, which aimed to free Jewish husbands from jail and prevent their deportation.

    I do have a thing for movies about Nazi Germany, I admit it. This one is really, really good. It also, I believe, was based on a true story...like most of them.

    Very hard to get into because you switch in time so many times, but it is well worth it. Beautifully acted and well put together. Loved it.

    Part of my post-war German film course. This is a very good WW-II era film, which focuses on an event I wasn't aware of and I don't think has been covered before, so right out of the gate, the concept is at least totally unique. Its a very definably German film about the protest of German women whose Jewish husbands have been imprisoned around 1943 (I think this was the year, might have been '42). It has a decidedly feminist agenda, but I don't see how this can be avoided considering the nature of the story. In the end, its a pretty powerful, emotional tale that contains a great performance by Katja Riemann and the work of clearly talented director. It comes off as somewhat by the numbers, but I think it would be very, very hard not to like this film. It just has a universal resonance, and it is quite well done, and respectful to the subject matter.
