This is the most beautiful film I have seen in a very long time. Hannah Herzsprung's role as Jenny von Loeben is filled with raw and powerful passion and as the story continues you see beauty and tenderness. I highly recommend this film. The last scene presents one of the most moving and musically thrilling moments I have ever witnessed in film.
