The latter part perhaps was more interesting.
The Reader review
31st August 2012
The first half of this film is really pretty dull. It began to look more interesting when the trial got under way, but by then I was weary of the stupidity of depicting German people in their own country speaking in foreign accents, and I could take no more of the awful jarring musical soundtrack which must be about the worst I have heard in a modern film. The music seemed to abate in the second half, so maybe the noise had been added (disastrously) to try and instil some life into the boring first hour.
