La mer à l'aube

Volker Schlöndorff France, 2012

Slappy McGee's rating of the film Calm at Sea

(3.5 stars) Yet another sad story set during WWII involving Nazis killing prisoners. It really only suffers from the fact that it offers nothing to the cinematic conversation of tons of movies just like this. It is well-made and fine performances are given, but just nothing enlightening to the subject itself. For me, I've just seen so many of these that I found it only mildly interesting due to the fine performances.
