Very boring Hollywood manufacture! All english speaking dialogs , rubbish music, Ralph Fiennes wear his usal hangdog loooking... It's a pity that this interesting story based on a novel wasn't made by a german cineast such as Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (Das Leben der Anderen) or Hans Weingartner (The Edukators) ... ;)
As usual in historical reconstitutions, several backgroud cars used and re-used in many scenes ... though the choice of them is good .

(thumbnails had all disappeared, so I edited them out)

Well, as a Hollywood film with English actors you can't expect it to be in German. That's just something you have to expect with an American or British production. It got nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay at the Oscar (although that's by no means the by all and end all) and Kate Winslet won Best Actress, but I suppose it wasn't that great a film overall. I know what you mean, I thought Downfall (Der Untergang) was an excellent film and miles better than most recent Hollywood WWII films. But I suppose you have to consider who your audience is, a completely German production with German actors just wouldn't do as well in the English speaking world. Downfall wasn't nominated for any Oscars except foreign language film and The Reader is a Harvey Weinstein production, he seems to make films to get Oscars.

Agree with you G-MANN, and I don't know if you would accept that you point the difference between Art , intellectual object and... industry whom aim is business and money ;)

At the end of the day a 30 million dollar film like this has to make money (and get Oscar nominations). I think the main thing this film achieved was getting Kate Winslet her Oscar (which many people reckoned was overdue after 6 nominations)

@S 415 GT: der ist auch absolute Scheiße. Irgendwann habe ich mal ein Stück davon mitbekommen - noch nicht einmal unfreiwillig komisch ist der Dreck und auch nach drei, vier Bier immer noch unerträglich. Die Autos sind bei IMCDb, damit solltest du zufrieden sein.

I was not planning to watch it, It's aired by Tele5, who always show bad movies.
