Sardonic satire on modern Germany
The film is about a young woman in a small conservative community in southern Germany who decides to do some research into life during World War 2, and discovers that the version of events she has been brought up to believe is not backed up by the facts. A witty and biting satire on bourgeois hypocrisy and people’s refusal (or unwillingness) to remember unpleasantness. To its credit the film is not didactic or one-sided and manages to make its point in a highly watchable but thought-provoking manner.
Dark vision of social blindness
The thrust of the movie, as I saw it, was the propensity of a society, any society, to conveniently ‘forget’ the details of its involvement with nefarious deeds carried out in its name. Much as the vast majority of American westerns tend to gloss over the true level of barbarism we so-called civilized members of society visited upon the ‘heathen’ Indians, the German town in question conveniently ‘forgot’ its level of involvement with the atrocities of the Nazi regime. Mädchen’s true ‘sin’ was of revisiting the Nazi era and detailing the involvement of many of the town’s leading lights with that regime and its atrocities.
In toto, this film asks disturbing questions about society (any society) and its willingness to justify or simply forget ‘inconvenient’ truths and realities.
