Stranded with her younger siblings after their Nazi parents are imprisoned, Lore leads the remains of her family across war-torn Germany in 1945. To survive the children must reach their Grandmother's house in the North but amidst the chaos of a defeated nation, Lore encounters the mysterious and intriguing Thomas, a young Jewish refugee. Unwanted, unwelcome, Thomas follows them and Lore finds her fragile reality shattered by feelings of both hatred and desire. To live, she must learn to trust a person she has been taught to hate. Lore, unspooling a lyrical, deeply affecting study into a rarely seen legacy of the Holocaust. Beautiful, it may be, but it is by no means a bourgeois film. Like Lore herself - fierce, defiantly unsocialised - it is a rebuke to notions of middle-class propriety, as well as a formidable work in its own right, by one of the best and most distinctive filmmakers of Australia.
