The Aftermath


The Aftermath
Set in postwar Germany in 1946, a woman arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband, a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, she is stunned to discover that her husband has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.

Herman Eloff quote iconIt's not one meant for frivolous watching but rather a treat for the sophisticated film connoisseur that's willing to delve a little deeper into the problematic topics tackled. With its top-class cast and well-written script, The Aftermath is a pure indulgence of the senses and an accomplished fulfilment of the craft.

Jim Judy quote iconOverall, and notwithstanding the steamy sex scenes, this feels like an old wartime romantic drama you might accidentally stumble across while channel surfing, watch for a bit, and then move on, promptly forgetting everything you’ve just seen. Methinks the same will likely happen to this offering meaning there won’t be much notable aftermath after seeing it.
