Movie Reviews

A Unique World War II Movie
Artist & Author | Near Mt. Baker, WA | 02/19/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For a really unique view of World War II, I'd recommend this movie. Far from the horrors of the War, it is the story of three sets of people affected by the war. The father of the family left home at their farm has been away for five years as a soldier. There are a German Jew and her daughter, who have escaped from Germany; they were trying to get to the United States, but instead were diverted to Australia. Finally, there are two Italian POWs, who have been 'loaned' out to the absent soldier's family to help keep the farm running.

The most unique aspect of this movie is that it is probably the only World War II movie where the Jew, at least the mother, is the 'bad guy.' She is a bitter, sour, vindictive woman who will resort to fabricating a story to get back at one of the Italians because her 20-year-old daughter finds him attractive. [She doesn't have much else to chose from in such a remote farm.]

This movie is full of very interesting and entertaining segments. Probably the most comical is when the seven or eight-year-old boy, high up in a tree, sees one of the Italians and the Jewish daughter get totally naked outdoors and make love. He then tried to explain it to his eleven-year-old sister and younger brother. The whole movie is made up of different ordinary, yet intriguing daily events that make the whole experience of watching it very satisfying. I would caution that there are a three incidences related to sexuality, so if parents let their kids watch the movie they should be prepared to explain it to their children. I don't recall any bad language."
15 Amore
Gabriel Salas | Maitland, Australia | 12/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""15 Amore" is an excellent movie shown from the perspective of a child living in an Australian farm. The beauty of nature and the simplicity of life in the farm is contrasted with the darkness and hatred that rise from the remote Second World War. This darkness deeply affects, in different ways, most of the adult characters of the movie."
