Taking place over several hours on a single hot August afternoon, just a few months past V-E Day, “1945″ presents a world that is trying to get back to normal. The arrival of two Orthodox Jews upsets a village’s preparations for a wedding day. Transporting two mysterious wooden boxes from the train station to the town, their arrival distresses everyone, making ‘normal’ seemingly even harder to achieve.
“1945 is a lean, unadorned parable about guilt and the nature and consequences of evil” – The LA Times
Average = 7.84
The most moving film I have ever seen.
Shoah meets ‘No Weddings and a Funeral’ meets ‘The Graduate”.
Truth and guilt will always out.
Too quick to start too slow to end.
Slow to start but came good.
We cannot escape our guilty deeds.
Initially intriguing but in the end boring.
Guilt is the greatest punishment.
