    Locarno Review: Despite Cerebral Fixations, 'Lore' Is Still a Radical Take on the Holocaust Survivor Tale From a Nazi Perspective

    Remove the prologue from Australian director Cate Shortland's German-language drama "Lore," which follows the teen daughter (newbie Saskia Rosendahl) of an S.S. officer on the lam in the immediate aftermath of World War II, and it would have much in common with any number of mopey Holo...
