Whether you’re a fan of the book The If or you’ve just seen the movie, you might be wondering what are the main issues between the two. These include the lack of distinguishing humans from animals, the World War II setting and lack of character development.
Despite the gimmicky gimmicks that litter the film, director Alfred Hitchcock managed to make The Book Thief a surprisingly enjoyable experience. Aside from the gimmicks, the movie elicited a few notable moments of interest from its plethora of characters. Among the noteworthy are Liesel (played by Sophie Nelisse), Hans (Geoffrey Rush), Rosa (Emily Watson), and the aforementioned Hitchcock. The film also showcased the burgeoning cultural and economic importance of Germany during the Second World War. In particular, the movie re-imagined the lives of Hans and Rosa and how their children and spouses fared under the German occupation. The movie also sheds light on the aforementioned duo’s love of reading and writing. It is this love that eventually culminates in the film’s ultimate epiphany, a rebirth of sorts for Hans and Rosa. The movie also proved that a love affair between a child and a parent is no sin, as long as it is well nourished.
Although the movie’s most egregious moment was its lurching narrator, the movie has enough heft to make it worth the price of admission. If you’re a fan of the genre or just want to be entertained for the next few hours, don’t miss The Book Thief. The movie will be in theaters for a limited time starting on January 31st. The book is currently available as well, and is a worthy addition to any library. Touted as a major release, The Book Thief stomps the competition. The movie has a number of impressive production numbers to boast of.
World War II setting
Despite the fact that The Book Thief is set in a fictional town during World War II, the film does a good job of bringing a child’s point of view to the screen. This makes the film a bit more realistic than some other Holocaust movies. It also gives a message that words can be powerful.
One of the main characters is a nine-year-old girl named Liesel Meminger. Her father is absent from the family, and she is being sent to live with her new foster parents. Liesel is sent to a village called Molching, near Munich.
Liesel’s foster family is hiding a Jewish man from the Nazis. Liesel helps the family and learns about the value of words. She also develops a friendship with a boy named Max Vandenburg. The two become friends because of their hatred for Hitler.
Liesel’s foster parents are Hans and Rosa Hubermann. They are the only people that Liesel knows in the family. The Hubermanns are kind, and Hans is quick to help her even when she is in trouble.
The film is based on the young adult novel of the same name by Markus Zusak. It was released in 2013, and is directed by Brian Percival. The production team spent three months scouting locations in Germany. They included Marquardt Palace, as well as the Babelsberg Studio in Potsdam-Babelsberg.
Despite the fact that The Book Thief has a dark tone, it’s not as harsh as other war drama movies. Unlike other films, the movie focuses on the impact that World War II has on one family.
In the film, the main character, Liesel Meminger, is a nine-year-old girl living with a German family in a fictional town during World War II. The movie’s theme is war, and it also highlights the loss of loved ones.
The film features a score by John Williams, and it was adapted by Michael Petroni. Although the screenplay is not particularly poetic, it is very effective at conveying the authentic side of Germany. It eschews poetic syntax, instead relying on vivid language.
Although there aren’t as many scenes of violence as other war films, The Book Thief is still a powerful story about a young girl’s life during World War II. The film is based on the young adult book of the same name, and it was released in 2013.
