This is a greatly made film, by some greatly talented individuals. A true cinematic wonder, at times. It almost feels like you are transported back to this exact time and place. There's no attempt to dramatize the story. It has an unrelenting real-world feel to the actual horrors that took place. The acting across the board is great. But, for me, the show stealer is Ralph Fiennes. Wow! I've always been an admirer of his talent. Personally, I only feel that it comes short of a 4 Star rating because of the seriously slow start. I don't think a good handful of scenes throughout are completely necessary. I would be even more into the story if they'd been left out. Other than this small annoyance, the film is impeccable.
