In postwar Germany in 1946, Rachael Morgan arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis, a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.

Recommend commentary. Director says is about loss and grief, and capacity for recovery.

All three leading actors are great in portraying the prescribed complex characters looking for renewal of their lives during the aftermath of World War II reconstruction. Love the bits of history and how their relationships come to at the end... and of course Knightley.

It seems to be a trend in Hollywood, New York, and London these days to make movies with not one likable character. If there is no one to root for, no one to admire, no one to wish well, why watch the movie? Or at least give us a character so despicable we can hope for his demise.

Watch now. Don't let the naysayers run you away from this amazing film. I thought it was delightful. It was a fease for the senses with the natural sets, long camera shots, a gorgeous mansion to explore and beautiful acting. Enjoy!

Predictable outcome to this post-WWII story, doesn't help the narrative of a neglected woman and her unhappy husband. Could have been more suspenseful and dramatic, if the characters were not so broadly drawn.

You are about to meet a strange people in a strange enemy country. You must keep clear of the Germans. You must not... fraternize."
-What does that mean?
It means we shouldn't be friendly to them.
===
We dropped more bombs on Hamburg in one weekend than fell on London
in the whole of the war.
===
Christ. The breath on these people.
-Yes, well, that's what 900 calories a day does to you.
Well, at least they're less trouble when they're hungry.
===
You don't like the chair?
-It's a Mies van der Rohe. "The house of construction." It's meant to be one of
the most comfortable chairs ever invented.
Well, it isn't. It's ugly.
-He was of the Bauhaus school. Their philosophy was all about rejecting
unnecessary adornment.
Do you really need a philosophy to make something comfortable?
-Well, behind every object, there is a philosophy, isn't there?
===
I don't know when he got to be so sanctimonious. You stifle under the weight
of all that decency.
