After being abandoned by their Nazi parents at the end of World War II, five German siblings embark on a harrowing journey across their war-torn country. Led by the eldest, 14 year-old Lore, the children are forced to confront their parents’ actions and the reality of a new world.
This ambitious sophomore feature from Cate Shortland arrived some 8 years after her sensuous debut, Somersault. With an enigmatic score from Max Richter and a powerhouse lead in newcomer Saskia Rosendahl, Lore sees an impressionistic study in collective guilt emerge from the dissolving fog of war.
