Alone in Berlin

Moving quiet rebellion.

(Edit) 10/04/2019

I read the book and thought it one of the best I’ve ever read.

It’s a very detailed and long book and did wonder how it would be filmed as it would be hard to convey the story in detail without it being 8 hours long. I think they did a fine job on it.

If you are looking for action and fast pace then it’s not for you. It’s about the tension and turning grief into something positive.

Whilst eliminating some details from the book, I felt the performances were excellent and it showed the brutality and hopelessness people lived under the Nazis in Germany.

It is a slow film,but it has to be, it’s not a feel good piece, but the book isn’t either. It’s full of sadness and hopelessness, but this brings with it a future, which is the whole point of the book and movie.

Iwoukd watch it again as well as reading the book.

Recommended.

The Happiest Days of Your Life

Jolly japes

(Edit) 30/10/2018

Posh fun in post war Britain. Ludicrous story which adds to the nonsense.

Harmless nonsense from posh people.

Nanking Massacre

A piece of little known history

(Edit) 26/10/2018

A superb account of the atrocities inflicted on the Chinese by Japanese aggressors. It has to be seen to be believed.

Fascinating account.

David Brent: Life on the Road

Too late

(Edit) 24/10/2018

He should have made this 15 years ago. We all know the gags . It’s clever but predictable if not a bit over the top.

British comedies never really work well as movies. It’s still worth a watch.

The Alamo Documentary

Cheap and boring

(Edit) 18/01/2018

What a dull documentary. Very little information about the reason for the battle and references to how movies re-enactments the story. Interspersed with people dressing up as the original battle, just like those dreadful American museums that should be avoided. Cheap and rubbish.
