Mortal Storm, The (MOD)

A story of Hitler's rise to power as seen through the microcosm of one German family. What may seem small and personal is instead towering, a bold revelation of the brutality of the Nazi regime leading to a ban of all MGM movies in Germany.

      Comments about Mortal Storm, The (MOD):

      the film itself is marvelous - just what all the other reviwers hve said. five stars!

      however, the film transfer is fuzzy - almost like watching a worn vhs. TMS was an early WArchives release, before they started getting serious about remastering titles. this one is certainly worthy for some tender loving care, like Four Daughters.

          Great movie that offers an excellent history lesson on a deeply personal level. Cast of characters is delightful; their delivery, very convincing. The subject, however, is often forgotten and never should've happened, BUT IT DID! This movie reveals "WHY?", by revealing what happens when man forgets the heart of truth and succumbs to blind belief and blind obedience-without thought. A perfect lesson for the individual.

              Great quality DVD for a movie that's 70 years old. Excellent film made possible by WB Shop's Made to order DVD's ... of which I'm a great fan.

                Comments about Mortal Storm, The (MOD):

                Along with "Strange Cargo," Borzage's finest MGM release. Intensely emotional, literate and deeply moving, this story of a family and its circle of friends torn apart by the advent of fascism bears all of Borzage's trademark theme of the transcendence of love over adversity, but never loses grip of the powerful, ultimately tragic story. It deserves a wider DVD release but is welcome from WB archive, of course. Now if only WB will put out "Shinin' Through" with Jeanette MacDonald most of the great MGM Borzage films will be available.

                  Good early Jimmy Stewart film showing life of ordinary people when the Nazis begin to take over -- really any country they invaded. Good balance of conflict felt by German military members, local officials forced to carry out Nazi policies, and ordinary citizens simply wishing to stay alive. Well written, good performances, without a sugary sweet romance thrown in, as often happens in modern films.

                    This is an interesting look at how Hollywood and America viewed Hitler and the Nazis BEFORE we had entered the war. Now knowing all the facts, it shows how mis-informed we really were.
