Is It Any Good?

This German drama doesn't add anything new to the "how far will a peaceful group push violence as a means of resistance" formula. While there's a lot to admire in And Tomorrow the Entire World (the acting, writing, and overall production quality is top-tier), there's also a lot to question.

Mainly, it will be hard for some viewers to get behind the main characters, to care about and for them, as they often come across more like rich, bored, mid-twenties slackers looking for something to do. Despite being on the right side of justice (Nazis bad, antifascism good), the film still mistakes whose story should really be focused on. Certainly, making main character Luisa the daughter of a baron and very wealthy is part of the film's commentary on some leftist activist groups (that some members aren't really serious or "in it all the way"), but the entire film is about 2-3 rich, White, young, attractive people and those around them that they end up hurting and causing trouble. What would this story look like if it was about people the Nazis despise (Blacks, Jews, and immigrants)? For one, some viewers might have more reason to care about the journey of Luisa, when she comes to her moment of "what was it all for?" And finally, the final scene might dangerously suggest to some that the film advocates violence.
