A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile the Black Swan, daughter of an evil magician.
Visually beautiful with a great central performance, but with a very predictable plot.
"Inheritance" is the story of Monika Hertwig and her journey to accept the truth about her father, Nazi commander, Amon Goeth, who was portrayed by actor Ralph Fiennes in "Schindler's List."
Documentary on a very difficult situation handeled with skill and a sure touch for those involved.
After all these years I finally got this wonderful box set!
