Kids all over the world and all through time want to rebel. Peter Muller (Robert Sean Leonard) and Thomas Berger (Christian Bale) are two such young men whose rebellion against the conformity of Nazi Germany took the form of a love of American swing music, British fashion, and Harlem slang. But when an innocent prank forces Peter into the Hitler Youth, their friendship and their loyalties are put to the test against the seductive power of Nazism. I first watched this film many years ago when I was 12 or 13 years old in theatre class, I was glued. To see the impact one man had on a whole nation and many others was heart-breaking. Many lost everything, but this is a story more through the eyes of people trying to rebel against that & what happens to them due to these actions. Though dated at times, it's seeped with a innocent beauty that I love. A fable that teaches one of always sticking to what they believe in even if it gets you into trouble, alone or even killed. The dancing and music is sublime & I can remember learning many of the dances in class and performing them. But, it's a movie that's always stuck with me & reminded me to be always be true to myself & stand for my beliefs until the very end. I hope you enjoy it & have a great weekend!
