So every year at the International Film Festival there are always a few odd ones, but that makes the good ones seem almost better.  So this one seemed to have a slightly odd plot.

 Nelly has been released from the camps after the end of the war.  It starts off with her having to have plastic surgery after having  facial injuries.  Then she heads off to find her husband, who fails to recognise her.  He does suggest that she pose as his wife, so that he can procure the money from the bank from her deceased family. 

I didn't quite get how he didn't know it was her.  Her face may have been different, but people usually talk or walk the same way, and their mannerisms don't change.  I just didn't buy it.  And the warm cinema had me nodding off, so maybe I lost sight of some of the plot line.  2/5
