Predictable but still worth a look

The suspense of this film is a bit better than I expected. It is a film that is taut and works a lot better than I thought it would. It is predictable but there is a comfort in that. The film's transformations from the early 1940s work well enough and are even inspiring considering the time period. A fun ride for those of us that already know how it's going to end, except of course for the racist and reductive depictions of Roma people.
