Im Labyrinth des Schweigens

Giulio Ricciarelli Germany, 2014

msmichel's rating of the film Labyrinth of Lies

'Do you want everyone in Germany asking if their father was a Nazi?' 'Yes!' Ricciarelli's first feature looks at Germany from 1958 when a young district attorney helped force a country look at its own recent history and culpability in its involvement in Auschwitz. A new generation had already forgotten or been failed to be taught that their country had done more than lose a war. Deftly plotted ambitious film.
