Found it hard to grasp just what was up in this movie. Such a great cast with actors that generally play such relatable, likeable characters, I felt at odds with them most often thru this film.
Am gonna try and watch a different day in hopes of "getting it" much more!
Excellent story, too dramatized
I enjoyed this movie, however I wish they had taken a step back on the hoakie dramatization of the brash American Jew entrenched in the haughty British legal system. The Holocaust, and defending it, is dramatic enough subject matter, it doesn't require uplifting music to spell out why the verdict and outcome were so positive.
The characters in the movie are so fun and enjoyable to watch; most likely because they are based on real people, and a true friendship and bond. Omar Sy's character is easily the most vibrant and likeable. It's fun to see the fish out of water aspects. Also it is touching to see how he sees through any imperfections of Phillipe, and brings him back to life by treating him as a human being with human needs and desires, instead of an invalid meant to be cradled.
