| "For decades, we have all been contradicting the will of Mother nature"
Considering the horrors of both the euthanasia program as well as the mass-murder of romani people and disabled in nazi-germany and the fact that we don't hear that much about this part of history, Nebel im August (Fog in August) has an important role to play. What could've been over-blown melodrama is a rather simple story about a young boy in the cold, isolated german hospital. The portrait is filled with authentic looks, almost to the point of feeling a bit flat but Ivo Pietzcker as the lead fills the film with a glow. It's sometimes crippled by a hamfisted storytelling, but does manage to convey an interesting image of the nazi program without feeling too didactic, proving that there's still important stories from this time in history worth telling on screen.
