Storyline

Die Verlorene Zeit (Remembrance) depicts a remarkable love story that blossomed amidst the terror of a German concentration camp in 1944 Poland. This impossible passion fuels the courage of a Polish prisoner who manages to rescue his Jewish girlfriend. Against all odds, they escape the camp and survive a treacherous journey to freedom. But during the chaos of the end of the war, they are forcibly separated and each is convinced that the other has died. More than thirty years later in New York, the happily married 52-year-old woman accidentally finds out that her former Polish lover is still alive. And she has to see him again. Written by Pam Katz / Anna Justice

A much under-rated sleeper hit
25 June 2013 | by aaron-hermondSee all my reviews

My wife & I headed out to the movies, we only have a small local theatre and the choice was World War Z, After Earth or this. I'm very glad we chose this movie.

Without giving anything away, I strongly recommend this movie, it is superbly made & acted, though at times some of the camera work was lacking (grainy darks, odd colours), not sure if this was intentional or not, but it wasn't too distracting.

Subtitles are always a hit with me, I much prefer movies in their native languages. Again, not distracting at all and easy to follow.

No big names that most people would recognise bar one and his is not a lead role.

I'll leave the various themes & meanings to other reviewers. I just go to watch & enjoy.

I recommend.
