Description

Three moving films about the horrors of war, and the inspirational people who have overcome these atrocities, compiled in one box-set containing - Downfall, Joyeux Noel and Twin Sisters.

Downfall:
Set in Berlin, 1945, this powerful and provocative drama retells the final days of the Second World War as recorded in the diaries of Adolf Hitler's private secretary, Traudl Junge, while barricaded with Hitler and his closest confidants in the Fuhrer's secret bunker. Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel with an astonishing performance by Bruno Ganz as history's most notorious figure, this unprecedented and controversial insider's perspective is a gripping insight into the madness and desperation of Hitler in the final hours of the war as the Russian Army closes a ring around Berlin.

Twin Sisters:
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and based on the internationally best-selling novel “The Twins” by Tessa De Loo, Twin Sisters is a powerfully epic love story spanning sixty years. The film tells the gripping tale of two separated sisters, one of whom grew up in a Jewish family, the other in a German family during the atrocities of World War 2. Powerful, moving and cinematically breathtaking.

Joyeux Noel:
A bona-fide hit of the 2005 Cannes Film Festival, Joyeux Noël is a heart-warming story about courage and dignity that touched three nations who went to war in 1914. On Christmas Eve in Northern France, officers and soldiers from Scotland, Germany and France, who fought each other from trenches barely 100 meters apart on a daily basis, put down their weapons and called a truce. It was an extraordinary act of human generosity and humility - and a true story.
