Re: The Book Thief
What I really liked about the movie is seeing Liesel's life and the life of ordinary German people and how such a powerful political party effected them. I liked seeing that slice of life of how the people were before the war and after the war. I loved seeing the basic discipline that existed before parents made their children spoilt little godlets. I hated that the burgermiester had such control over his wife that she could not enjoy the company of a young girl. I liked that I was seeing the POV of the losers of a major international war as that is very rarely done and it gives you an understanding perhaps why people did some of the horrific things that happened during World War II. I have not read the book but I do understand it is an international best seller. It's that I feel that the director may have missed getting the basic premise of the movie across. While it was a sweet poignant movie I felt it was missing that spark, that certain something that is communicated to the audience that you just get and that is what would have made it a brilliant film.
