Yet another World War II movie, somehow, for awards season 2008. Good? Yes. Great? No. The movie follows Viggo Mortensen as a professor who lets himself get on the slippery slope to involvement with the Nazi party during the war. But itâ€™s neither his intention nor, in some ways, his fault, which is the most interesting plot point on which the movie turns. Can he be good if he is connected to something so evil? It sounds simplistic, but if anything itâ€™s way too complicated, with many a ponderence. This was originally a stage play, and it never rises above that talky theatrical level to make a great movie. (For a better example of how riveting a stage play can be as a film, see Doubt). However, it is a great play, very obviously, so the material is intriguing throughout.
