    Little over half hour in and I thought this was going to be a charming "slice of life" slow cinema affair where the local peasants thumb their noses at the Nazi regime by pulling the wool over their eyes. Similar to the high jinks found in 1969's The Secret of Santa Vittoria.

    This truly uniformed assumption made the last act all the more shocking! This is why going in blind makes for a better and more honest first impression. So…

    Director Valdimar Johannsson's directorial debut is the result of studying under Bela Tarr at his filmmaking school Film Factory, which Bela Tarr had opened shortly after his retirement as an legendary filmmaker and former heavyweight champion of "Slow Cinema".

    One of the greatest war films ever to grace the screen!

    Yes it is animated but it is NOT! I repeat.. it is NOT for young children!

    My heart aches for Akiyuki Nosaka the author of the devastating semi autobiographical novel the film is based upon!

    Naughty Approved!
