Hauke Schenck’s review published on Letterboxd:
Tragedy + Hopeless silly optimism = Beauty
And in this movie it shows once again.
The funny tale of a man who wants to conquer a woman's heart who is already promised to another man. That are the first 50 minutes of the film. And then, for the first time we're introduced to the main plot of the story, maybe a little late.
But anyways, the scenes in the concentration camp are so beautifully made and the first half of the film already made us care so much for Guido that we root for him in every single problem that he has to solve and still make his son continue to play the game. And as a consequence we get golden comedy with really lovely acting.
Great and heartwarming film.
