Australia, Germany, United Kingdom | 2012 | Cate Shortland
When their Nazi parents are arrested at the chaotic close of WWII, five German siblings set off on a difficult journey through a devastated landscape to their grandmother’s house in distant Hamburg. Stunned by Hitler’s defeat, and suddenly poor and hungry, the children no longer know whom to trust or what to believe. Cate (Somersault) Shortland’s second feature is a tense and lyrical coming-of-age story unlike any other, as well as one of the best-reviewed foreign films of the year. “A remarkable accomplishment.” –New York Observer.
