LORE (2012) (German w/ English Subtitles)

As World War II grinds to its bloody close in Europe, a prominent Nazi S.S. officer and his wife frantically burn incriminating documents and pack the belongings essential for life on the run from justice in the rapidly approaching "unknown country" of Allied-occupied Germany. "Mutti" and "Vati" decide that their children will be better off separated from them, so they send them, alone, on a 500-mile trek across Germany to their grandmother's house in Hamburg.

"Cate Shortland’s 'Lore' is not a fairy tale, but it feels like one: a dark, mysterious fable of hungry, frightened children making their way through a perilous enchanted forest inhabited by demons. The film sustains an air of overarching mystery in which the viewer, like the title character, is in the position of a sheltered child plunked into an alien environment and required to fend for herself without a map or compass.

A remarkable young actress, Saskia Rosendahl, plays this chilly, largely unsympathetic protagonist, a blond 14-year-old German girl nicknamed Lore who herds her siblings through the Bavarian woods in the spring of 1945."

-Stephen Holden, New York Times
