Rated NR · 2009
Like a chapter out of the book Against Our Will, writer-director Max Färberböck’s historical shocker wants us to feel the brutality of German women being raped by victorious Russian soldiers in the rubble of Berlin at the climax of WWII — in this case through the eyes of a survivor who calls herself Anonyma (played by actor Nina Hoss from Jerichow). But after a few graphic sexual assaults and accompanying humiliations, the atrocities keep on coming and the message gets buried in repetition. Färberböck’s screenplay is based on a sensational memoir that shocked the German public for all the wrong reasons — national pride, etc. The film’s one-note sonata of cruelty and survival is too much of a repugnant thing. It callouses the conscience. Also with Jördis Triebel and Evgeny Sidikhin (131 min.).
