The Poll Diaries (2010)

Directed by: Chris Kraus
Country: Germany

Plot: In the summer of 1914, thirteen-year-old Oda von Siering (Paula Beer) leaves Berlin to join her family and an assortment of German and Russian aristocrats on an estate in Estonia.
Quick comment: It was beautifully shot but the director might have taken better advantage from the script if his approach had more guts. The moments of tension were not so often and its pretentions of being a great drama or a memorable love story were never achieved.
Relevant Awards: Best cinematography and costume design at German Film Awards.
