Review: Diplomacy, 2014, dir. Volker Schlöndorff


“World War II spanned six continents, lasted as many years, and involved roughly 100 million participants. Pardon the quick and dirty history lesson, but an appreciation of scale is needed to understand why people continue to write books and make movies about The Big One nearly seven decades after the fact. The conflict covered so much ground and impacted so many lives that our storytellers may never run out of stories to tell about it. Micro-narratives lurk in the nooks and crannies of combat, adding human depth to a vast pastiche of valor and cruelty, heroism and horror.” – Via Movie Mezzanine
