Alright, full disclosure, I adore historical movies. While searching through HBO go’s app, I stumbled upon this treasure.
The movie, originally a TV movie, stars big names like Colin Firth, Kenneth Branagh, and Stanley Tucci. And it tells the story about something we’ve all thought about: when did the Nazis decide to implement the Final Solution. (AKA killing six million Jews in internment camps.)
So yes, by that description alone, it should tell you this movie is dark. They speak of Jews as spiders in your bathtub, as if they are begging to be exterminated. Its disgusting and inhumane and horrible.
But once you get past that, the movie is incredibly interesting. In a period of two hours, these German Nazi officials decided on the mass genocide of the Jewish people. The conversation involved was absurd-if only for the content of discussion.
I feel like this is one of those movies that you need to see at least once in your life. Right up there next to Schindler’s List, Forest Gump, and Silence of the Lamb.
So if you’re ever looking for a movie on HBO Go’s app, I’d recommend this one.
