An Unforgettable Summer

 

continued

This is a visually and emotionally powerful film. The messages embedded in the story, though not new, are timeless and worthy of repetition: that one should never lose sympathy for the wretched; that following orders is still no excuse for committing crimes against humanity; that the price for placing moral principles above personal advantage can be extraordinarily high; and that there is no greater sin than the theft of a human life.

An Unforgettable Summer is shown on October 24 at Lorch Hall as the last in a Thursday U-M Balkan film series that began September 19.    (end of article)
