| Moving story in beautiful pictures
Wonderful story of family ties that get untied due to an overachieving Nazi father who values duty more than his own blood. Very well played by all main cast and beautifully shot. On a side note we see how (too) many Nazis remained in power after the War. The protagonist is torn between his love for art and the pain his father causes, so the spectator feels for him as he seems to lose his mind.
