  • The film ends up relying on stating a basic situation over and over rather than developing any sort of dramatic story concerning recognizable human beings, at least until things get moving a little faster in its second hour. show more

  • A Woman in Berlin doesn't justify retribution, but in such moments it does clarify the horrible logic of vengeance. show more

  • The film is well-acted, with restraint, by Hoss and Sidikhin. The writer and director, Max Faerberboeck, employs a level gaze and avoids for the most part artificial sentimentality. The physical production is convincing. show more
