Yep the whole movie reduced me to a blubbering wreck...I was still sobbing as we left the cinema. Have never seen the film again and I don't think I want to either.
The final scene where Oskar is changing into the camp clothes and breaks down, how his Nazi badge '2 more, maybe 3''...
I remember at the cinema, when it ended, no one moved... just silence as folks watched the credits to the end... almost as if everyone just needed a bit of time, or that leaving would be disrespectful...a cinematic masterpiece that should be part of everyone's education
It's very easy to understand why it never features in anyone's list of favourite movies. Maybe there should be a category for most "profoundly moving movie"
I've read a lot of reviews of the movie over the years and still find it offensive that there are people who nit-pick over aspects of accuracy, performance, continuity...everything really that I take little notice of.
I know I'm a movie-makers dream...someone who sits in the cinema and is totally taken-in by the story but IMO it's Speilberg's crowning glory...beyond criticism.
