Movies: The Occupant, The Angel, The Photographer of Mauthausen

Movie 1:  The Occupant

This Spanish film (dubbed in English…so annoying and distracting) is unique with scenes filled with suspense and intrigue.  At the same time it is often confusing and difficult to follow.  It’s ultimately disappointing.  This film is on Netflix.



Movie 2:  The Angel

Based on the New York Times bestselling book ‘The Angel: The Egyptian Spy Who Saved Israel’ by Uri Bar-Joseph.  True stories make great films.  This one is a reminder of recent history when Middle Eastern conflicts ultimately involved much of the Western world.  It’s intense, focused on fresh perspectives and riveting to watch.  (Netflix) 


Movie 3:  The Photographer of Mauthausen

And another Netflix release making this a great film week for us.  This film is set in 1943 in the Austrian concentration camp of Mauthausen where Spain’s anti-Franco prisoners were under the control of Germany’s war machine.  It’s horrific but a compelling story that should be required viewing.  Spanish with English subtitles.
