I left with endless troubling questions unanswered. The melodrama turned shallow. I loved the beauty and tenderness, but I didn't believe The Aftermath.
The aftermath of WW2 is a resonant topic that is totally botched here. What's left is soap opera, leaving suds that even the stellar Knightley, Skarsgård and Clarke can't rinse off their performances.
An emotionally constipated movie about emotional constipation.
A listlessly soapy melodrama [that], save for a little bit of modern-day nudity and bloodshed, could have been churned out 60-70 years ago and then gone largely forgotten in the ensuing decades.
the focus of "The Aftermath" is in all the wrong places, spending time with characters in which we are unable to gain an emotional foothold. This misplaced attention makes for an erotic drama that feels cold, and a political thriller that feels empty.
The Aftermath shows that even the most foolproof ideas wither in the face of turgid, overripe melodrama.
Another period melodrama that knows exactly what it is, and that just isn't quite enough.
The only reason to consider seeing their surprisingly unappealing romantic triangle is the particular period context that hasn't been seen in fiction films.
Lingerie and tears shed in morally complex historical drama.
...captures the atmosphere of bombed out Hamburg...Knightley gives a mesmerizing performance with Clarke and Skarsgård not far behind.
Even with the last world war as its backdrop, this story is one cold affair.
British director James Kent and his colleagues have mounted an unusually handsome production with beautiful people in the foreground. But The Aftermath sacrifices substance for soap opera, and the results are mediocre at best
