★★★½ review by Allison M. on Letterboxd
Interesting topics explored.
I saw this movie as a new vegan and found the fishing/fish grilling scenes to be a bit disturbing. Kind of like a former smoker that can't stand being around smoke.
★★★½ review by Alex Sheldon on Letterboxd
Starts off relatively okay, but elevated by a more engrossing 2nd half once some honest dialogue ensues and certain truths are laid bare.
What do you choose to do when your own country is declared the world's 'bad guy' after a war? Ignore and forget and focus on rebuilding the nation? Remain so consumed with anger and shame that you denounce your own country and language? Or live a life reciting alternative versions of events you were part of as a means of dealing with guilt?
Some heavy themes are addressed in what is otherwise a lighthearted film.

★★★★½ review by Pretty Odd on Letterboxd
So simple yet so good, like, extremely good. Barbet schroeder himself was there and there was a q&a so it was kinda cool.
Also, as someone who also doesn't love his own country i can kinda understand the main character's feelings towards germany and how she acts everytime something related to germany is brought up.
Another also, again, schroeder's use of language in his films is very creative. You want this character to speak english? No problem. That character to speak spanish? No hay problema. German? Kein problem.
