In 1946 postwar Germany, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), 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 (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
Insider tip: “Those who enjoy either World War II movies or period dramas likely will enjoy this movie, even if some of the plot twists are predictable. It’s an enjoyable deviation from the typical war story . . . .” (Melissa Yeager, Arizona Republic). Ty Burr, Boston Globe, adds: “Throughout, Knightley gives this genteel silliness conviction, grace, heart, and nerve. Skarsgård gives it smolder and sex appeal. And sometimes, dear reader, that’s all a movie needs.” Rex Reed, Observer: “The quality of the acting is so strong that the emotional impact is undeniable. Knightley is so gorgeous, Skarsgård, the Swedish heartthrob, is so decent, and Clarke is so noble in the way he hides his vulnerability, that I liked them all.”
