Från IMDB.com: "THE READER opens in post-WWII Germany when teenager Michael Berg becomes ill and is helped home by Hanna, a stranger twice his age. Michael recovers from scarlet fever and seeks out Hanna to thank her. The two are quickly drawn into a passionate but secretive affair. Michael discovers that Hanna loves being read to and their physical relationship deepens. Hanna is enthralled as Michael reads to her from "The Odyssey," "Huck Finn" and "The Lady with the Little Dog." Despite their intense bond, Hanna mysteriously disappears one day and Michael is left confused and heartbroken. Eight years later, while Michael is a law student observing the Nazi war crime trials, he is stunned to find Hanna back in his life - this time as a defendant in the courtroom. As Hanna's past is revealed, Michael uncovers a deep secret that will impact both of their lives. THE READER is a story about truth and reconciliation, about how one generation comes to terms with the crimes of another."
Igår såg vi The Reader. Den började bra och ganska fartfylld. En hel del fokus på sex i första tredjedelen. Sen blev den stundtals lite långsam. Rör lite lätt vid frågor kring Förintelsen. Flera oförklarliga händelser på slutet som jag fortfarande tänker lite irriterat på, men det var nog tänkt så...eller...
Tagline: "How far would you go to protect a secret?" passar alldeles utmärkt.
Sevärd och intressant, men lite seg här och där.
