I chose to watch The Last Lieutenant because I had seen another film recently by the same director. It was called The Beautiful Country. I fell in love with that film so I wanted to watch other movies by director Hans Petter Moland.
This isn’t your typical war movie and there isn’t alot of fighting shown. It’s basically about a man who is sold out for his country during WW11.
I definitely liked this movie and I thought that it was beautifully filmed. It was nice to see the relationship between the Lieutenant and his wife and how far someone will go to stay loyal to his country thereby fulfilling his definition of love.
My favorite parts were the small bits of humour throughout the film. Even though most of the film ahowed that the prospects were bleak, they still were able to find humour in the ordinariness of life. I was a little confused about the ending, but then again, I like movies that don’t force fed you.
Id rate this movie a 6 out of 10.
This movie taught me that when you really are in love with an ideal, you will sacrifice to remain loyal it.
