Wartime sacrifice turns to unexpected feelings in Black Book. This German film follows a Jewish woman who is part of the resistance in World Ward II. She infiltrates the Nazi regime with sex and allure. She lies, schemes and seduces her way into the top ranks to help thwart their murderous efforts. Along the way, under all the politics and violence, a relationship develops that no one expected. Beautifully shot and well acted, a good entry to foreign film this year.
