La mer à l'aube

Volker Schlöndorff France, 2012

Christofer Aniel's rating of the film Calm at Sea

The film has great cinematography and an interesting narrative that does not convey that all French people are good and all German people are bad, during World War II. All characters are given human qualities, have their own motivations, and speak their mind which pulls this film forward. However, there weren’t any big twists or surprises that would have given it a satisfying ending.
