Rosenstrasse | Chicago Reader

Rosenstrasse

Margarethe von Trotta's disappointing 2003 period drama focuses on the little-known protests of Aryan German women married to Jewish men who were held by the gestapo in a building on Berlin's Rosenstrasse in 1943. The personal story told in flashbacks is of a little Jewish girl who's briefly adopted by one of these women (Katja Riemann), a musician. A lot of effort appears to have gone into the glitzy period re-creation, but this is mainly a tearjerker. In German with subtitles. PG-13, 136 min.
