Seeing the sort of neighbourhood his character grows up in and how his behaviour impacts on the rest of his family after the death of his father is really quite moving. You feel a real sense of gloo... read more

“Los recursos visuales deben estar ahí complementando al todo que es la película, no a maquillar sus defectos. y es que de nada sirve tener una gran fotografía y buenas actuaciones cuando el guión que tienes entre manos es un desastre.

Cuando haces cosas como usar primerísimos planos en una conversación habitual tiene que tener una justificación. Sin embargo da la impresión de que aquí todo está para hacer que la película sea "cool", y encima tratando un tema tan delicado como el nazismo o el origen de la violencia.
