Storyline

Let Me Go is a film about mothers and daughters, it is about ghosts from the past and the impact they leave on the present. Developed from Helga Schneider's true life story, Let Me Go explores the effect on Helga's life of being abandoned by her mother, Traudi in 1941 when she was just four years old. The film is set in the year 2000 following not only Helga and Traudi's journeys but the next two generations and how Beth, Helga's daughter and Emily her granddaughter are confronted with the long-term effects of Traudi's leaving. When Helga receives a letter telling her that Traudi is close to death, it is Emily with whom Helga shares the truth. Emily volunteers to accompany her to Vienna to meet the great-grandmother she thought was dead, and experience the unraveling of the darkest of family secrets. Written by Polly Steele

Makes you think
21 July 2017 | by davidstevSee all my reviews

Made you think a lot about how individual and family fortunes are forever impacted by involvement in major world events, when everyone else has moved on or forgotten. Very atmospheric locations and music. Left slightly curious about the role of other (male) family members who didn't feature - but maybe not that important to the main drama.
