The Aftermath

Director: James Kent
Year Released: 2019
Rating: 1.0

At the end of WWII, Col. Lewis Morgan (Jason Clarke) and unhappy wife Rachael (Keira Knightley) are sent to a destroyed Hamburg to live in the same house as German architect (and widower) Stefan (Alexander Skarsgård) and his teenage daughter (Flora Thiemann) who, as one might predict, are not happy about 'the enemy' taking up their home (who thought that would ever be a good idea?).  It offers little insight into the mindset of those still loyal to Hitler (the 88s) except they chain smoke in broken down buildings and want revenge, and the 'love triangle' that emerges, with the insinuation that Rachael's infidelity helps 'save' her marriage to Lewis, is downright preposterous.  Even the Goofs section of the IMDb, normally not the place for valid criticism, calls it out: "public resistance to the Allies in the West was virtually unheard of."
