Der Vorleser

Another great film based on a good book `Der Vorleser'written by Bernard Schlink in 1995. A haunting drama of a love story between a fifteen year old German boy and a mysterious tram ticket collector. Period drama involving war trials of Auschwitz and how literature and good reading transcends above morality and judgment. Superb direction by Stephen Daldry and a brilliant musical score by Nico Muhly. I have seen this film after four years and am spellbound. Kate Winslet is outstanding. Nudity in the film is artistically brought forward. Winslet went under the skin of the role. Ralph Fiennes is his usual brilliant and competent self. Bruno Ganz (Der Untergang)and (The Unknown)is excellent as the law professor.
