Film Evening 2014 The Book Thief


Our film this year was based on a book written by Australian Markus Zusak, that most of us had read: “The Book Thief”.   “In 1938, young orphan Liesel arrives at the home of her new foster parents, Hans and Rosa. When Hans, a kindly housepainter, learns that Liesel cannot read, he teaches the child the wonders of the written language.  Unseen but heard in the occasional voice-over, Death hovers about, commenting with no small amount of compassion about the mystery of people, who can be so evil and then so unbearably kind.  The drama follows the titular young girl as she observes the rise of the Nazis with a mixture of bewilderment and resolve – her passion for reading growing even as their literary bonfires burn.”

We have never tackled German food in the past, so this presented quite a challenge, but everyone rose to the occasion in style!

We appear to be spending all of our time eating & drinking  in these images!  However, we spent 2 hours watching the film.... REALLY!
