"Thanks to the Hitler-Stalin non-aggression pact, Poltava, Ukraine, in 1941 was still a place where the fruits of civilizationin the case of Wunderkinder, musicflourished. Of course, all that changed when the Nazis invaded, and Marcus O. Rosenmüller's achievement is to evoke those pre- and post-invasion times through the eyes of three children, all of them gifted musicians.
Pianist Larissa (Imogen Burell) and violinists Abrascha (Elin Kolev) and Hanna (Mathilda Adamik) share a great love of music and a friendship based on the joy they take from constant discoveryall three dream of playing Carnegie Hall one day. When the Nazis invade, the three of themLarissa and Abrascha being Jewish and Hanna being Germanfind their friendship torn apart and their worlds collapsing through no fault of their own.
Dedicated to the memory of the half-million children who perished in the Holocaust, Wunderkinder is a moving tribute to innocence." Palm Springs International Film Festival
Lovingly directed as a poem to lost innocence, Wunderkinder is not a "children's film." It is a film from a child's perspective that may help some families talk about the loss and destruction of World War II and the horror of the Holocaust. It is highly recommended that parents watch the trailer before deciding to see the film with their families.
