Very nice company - and overall a good movie with very good acting but I thought there was something missing in how the brutality of the Nazi regime was somewhat sanitized and seemed not to touch Leisel. The war was reduced in some sense to a backdrop of this intense young girl, and her reaction to the loss of her family, best friend, and neighbors was more theater than true emotional loss. Also thought the Death narrator was unnecessarily obscure and did not add much to the story - other than to let you know Leisel lived to an old age and had a family.
