The Aftermath shows that World War II is over, and a British colonel and his wife (Jason Clarke and Keira Knightley) are assigned to live in Hamburg during the post-war reconstruction, but tensions arise with the German who previously owned the house, Stefan Lubert, played by Alexander Skarsgård, who is actually Swedish.
Even though period movies aren’t really my bag, this looks like it could be pretty good… oh, until it started dropping into romantic slush as she falls for the German guy whose wife died in the war.
The Aftermath is released in the UK on March 1st 2019.
