aldershot’s review published on Letterboxd:
I really enjoyed the lighthearted nature to an otherwise, grim story. The idea of portraying the horrors of WWII from a child's perspective was wild and engaging. The movie often, if not the entirety of it, dips into extremely dark themes, but it's ability to keep it fun and even endearing is an achievement worth noting.
The performances were great and I simply could not get enough of Scarlett Johansson's character. As much as I loved the cast, nearly everyone's German accent was, if I'm to be blunt, terrible. How minor this is will depend on the person. Luckily, the great screenwriting, directing, and the phenomenal cinematography alleviated any issues I had with the accents.
