ACF Europe #12: A Hidden Life

 

Here’s a new conversation with our own resident expert on totalitarianism (including on-screen) @FlaggTaylor, about the beautiful new Terrence Malick movie, A Hidden Life. It’s now available for streaming–the true story of Franz Jaegerstaetter, a Catholic martyr in WWII in Austria, a young man, husband, and father of three daughters, who refused to swear the oath of loyalty to Hitler, retold from the letters he exchanged with his wife during his imprisonment.

    Thanks for covering this movie. Spectacularly shot and acted film. And the last film appearance of both Bruno Ganz and Michael Nyqvist. Really stuck with me after watching.

    Yeah, they play the very important symbolic roles of judge & bishop! Not a bad coda to their careers…

    Agree completely. Very fitting roles for such incredible actors to go out on for sure.
