I really enjoyed this excellent movie that takes place at the end of WWII in Berlin, Germany, called Rosenstrasse, by Margarethe von Trotta. Rosenstrasse is a street in Berlin where the Jewish spouses of German wives were jailed, before being sent to concentration camps. The story focuses on a German pianist born into a noble family who falls in love with a Jewish violinist, and all the things she goes through when she tries to get him out of Rosenstrasse.
Actually, the script is quite complex and several stories that are developped and the movie is built on flashbacks that take us back and forth from modern times to 1943 Rosenstrasse. The actors and actresses are remarkable and the fact that they are not well-known adds to the reality of the events depicted.
If you get a chance to see it, don’t miss it.
