Such a beautiful story of love and... uhm, darkness. Seriously, every person who was forced to leave the homeland, bears the heavy weight of the past, even though there are a lot of wonderful memories. Portman did a beautiful portrayal of that burden.
The Thin Red Line (1998) is a beautiful masterpiece that shows us the meaningless of human non-tolerant and aggressive nature. What touched me the most was Terrence Malick's poetic interpretation of human ignorance on beauty, nature and peace/tranquility.
The film's poetic beauty shows in almost every frame, but especially in those mediating images of nature, when Malick wants us to stop and think for a second what beauty we as species are a part of.
There are the moments when…
Original and surprising in many ways, this film brings happiness and a pinch of sadness over the modern way of life that promotes unnatural division between people, especially family members. You can cry, but you will most definitely laugh while watching another great film that comes from contemporary Germany.
