Lost Masterpiece - A Time to Love and a Time to Die review by MG

Spoiler Alert
27/01/2021

This is an extraordinary film, probably Sirk's best film, and that is saying something. A wonderfully simple love story set among the ruins of Germany late in the war. Superbly directed, and the photography and cinemascope composition are exceptionally accomplished. Highly recommended.
