Another 3.5er... a psychological character study. There's not a lot of action here, and I must presume that's the point... the meat here is a descent from isolation to mania, and the lasting effects thereof. More specifically it touches on the mental tolls and torture of the Nazi regime. I liked it, but then, I tend to like the dark and mental.
