The thing about European movies ,predominantly French and German cinema , that the plotline is of thinly simplistic threadlike linen ,their main artfully signature hallmark , enraptures three-folded tributary
A. The astral profundity headlong the philosophical plane of the scripted phraseology.
B.The ethereal self-narrating cinematography

Conclusion : European cinema makes me wallow in the stink of all those wasetful hours i've merged with my bed endorsing needlessly high-budget Hollywood trash . Das Weisse Band (2009) 🔹Deliberately monochrome , the movie was originally shot in color and then altered to black and white in post-production in order to instill in the audience an alienated watchful distance from matchlessly unfitful naturalism ; Which in return heightens the circumstantial exhibits in narrative lifelike exactitude , as of a self-narrative reportage or of a cinematic documentary . 🔹Similar to a cinematic documentary , not everyone casted on it , is of a namely assigned idendity , in fact , all of the characters are purposefully nameless , meaning all their public & personal identities are merely job-titled , since the movie takes place in a tight-knitted community village where the handful members of such delineated societies are primarily coin-apprenticed.
Despite the movie being , first-person peripheral narrator , the narrator himself is namelessly coin-apprenticed as 'The School Teacher' . 🔹Parental abuse and familial dysfunctionalities amid an all-encompassing crapsack world wherein the versatile undertones of tight-knitted cultural repression , ironcladed religious and patriarchal hierarchies , are all monitored and addressed in lensed scrutiny .
And most importantly , how apathetic emotional disconnection self-manifested in callous wrongdoing , fatalistic humanism , moral bankruptcy and benumbing remorseless reasoning, intrinsically inborn before the oppression of rigid parental disciplinary ,spiteful societal divisions and hydraulic religious monopoly.
