Alone In Berlin DVD coverThis World War II drama zeroes in on a small but brave act of defiance against the Nazis, carried out by an ordinary couple (Brendan Gleeson and Emma Thompson) who have lost their only son during the invasion of France.

The grief stricken pair spread postcards bearing anti-Nazi slogans throughout the city, creating a minor disruption in the war machine and attracting the attention of a smug detective (Daniel Brühl) determined to track them down. Actor-turned-director Vincent Perez ratchets up the tension as the net slowly closes on the couple, and Gleeson is superb as the gruff rebel who knows this small act of resistance is ultimately doomed to fail.
