Thought provoking; Nana was good; the other characters, not so much.

The way Nana talks about her past reminds me of many of the interviews I've seen of German WW2 veterans. They speak fondly of homeland and unity under Nazi rule. It's true that they definitely do not seem repentant about their past deed's, and this film for sure; takes that into stride. But one thing I've always found interesting is that all these former citizens and soldiers of Nazi Germany will neither outright speak the opinion that they were right in their deeds, nor that they were they wrong. There might be a lot that needs to psychoanalyzed about that. We probably will never know the complete analysis for that, unfortunately.
I bought the character that was Nana, but all the other characters, their reactions, dialogue's, and personalities were all too one dimensional, and unbelievable. It's understandable that they would be upset, disgusted, and outraged by the revelation. But that's their Nana they're talking about and speaking to. Some things that were done in the film are uncalled for, and even extremely violating of any person, let alone a family member. Ultimately as individuals, we do not hold the strings of fate; and we are not masters. We just try to be as good people as we can be, especially to the ones we love.
