Storyline

Set in postwar Germany in 1946, Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

Goofs

In a scene a recording of Sanson and Dalilah's Aria "Mon Coeur S'Ouvre a ta Voix" is credited to be sung by Maria Callas (and indeed sounds like her) but so far I cannot find so early a recording of this aria by La Callas (late 45/early 46). See more »

Alternate Versions

For the film's Australian release, the distributor chose to make reductions to stronger sexual detail in two scenes in order to obtain an M classification. The uncut version of the film was later released with an MA15+ classification for a DVD/Video release. See more »

A film stuck in two minds but completing neither
5 March 2019 | by muamba_eats_toastSee all my reviews

The first hour set up the film excellently. However from that point the whole film felt torn between wanting to be an epic historical drama and a romantic drama whilst settling on either. Even at the end I had no idea what they were trying to accomplish with the film or what the supposed message was. Could have been a lot better had they settled on a theme. Still watchable but at the end all felt a little pointless.
