For the first time in my life (and 15 years after it came out) I finally saw this movie last night. Wow. You know a movie’s really, really good when you find yourself wanting to watch it several more times to take it all in. A few times I almost cried, such as the time the educated female Jewess Reiter (played by Romanian-born Elina Löwensohn) is shot for telling her Nazi superiors what they didn’t want to admit: that their construction project was structurally unsound. In short, a truly amazing film.
