Set in Berlin

I loved the colours and the light in The Reader. It left me wondering who the clever people were that designed the set and sourced the decor. I especially loved Hanna's (Kate Winslet) home. So humble and basic, but with such beautiful light and rawness. Enter the (never locked) frosted glass doors with little star cut-outs and look straight ahead to the claw foot bath bathed in pink light, the living area on the left past a floral sheer curtain where just beyond is a simple, cosy bed. It's like a like a lived in (and loved in) doll's house.

Loved this film and the cinematography too. The book is also a very powerful read if you haven't read it already.

I, too, just love the settings in this movie. I've been meaning to read the book, so thanks for reminding me. :)
