    Starring Liv Ullmann of Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966) and Cries and Whispers (1972) and Peter Fonda, The Rose Garden powerfully recounts a series of appalling factual events from World War II: the brutal extermination of 20 Jewish children by way of medical experimentation and subsequent hangings, carried out by Nazi officials.

    Based on the Paul Hengge novel of the same name, this is a well-devised film from a courageous director, Fons Rademakers (1973’s “Because of the Cats”). It pulls no punches in pitting justice against injustice, and guides its audience members through a courtroom drama of the truest form.

    In describing the visual supremacy of this film, Senses of Cinema says “The camera style is ‘active’ – as usual for the director – objects fall in and out of frame as if gliding through an individual consciousness. Relatively static scenes are enlivened by zooms, strange angles and a wide variety of shots, building a hurried structure that nicely complements the nature of the story. Controlled close-ups of Reichenbach {a survivor of the children’s concentration camp} reveal a tortured man, even before he utters a single word.”
