The Book Thief is as beautiful as it is sad

5 second plot: Liesel is a young girl growing up in Germany in the Second World War. She is placed with an elderly couple after her mother has to give her up. For some years they hide Max, a Jewish refugee. He becomes her best friend. And of course: she loves reading books.

5 second review: Man, I didn't know what to think of this movie at first. Usually, I hate dramatic films like these. They are even speaking English with a German accent all the time. That is totally not done in my (yep, here it is...) book. But this amazing sweet young beautiful actress Sophie NĂ©lisse makes everything right. So at the end, all things considered, I really liked this movie.

IMDb score: 7,7/10
Our score: 8/10
