Good performance by Lisa Hartman
13 January 2005 | by lameroSee all my reviews

Based on Ladislav Grossman's novel "The Bride", this drama was filmed back in 1984 in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, then the crew stopped filming, because protagonist Lisa Hartman had to promote her feature film "Where The Boys Are '84" in the States and they finally finished it on location in Wasserburg, Germany! Though "The 17th Bride" never reached "blockbuster quality", this independent movie belongs to one of my favorite history dramas: Dramatic plot lines, pent-up feelings, a special sense of humor, subtle tragedy and Lisa Hartman's credible interpretation of a heroine in hard times make this movie to kind of an "uncrowned WWII drama"!
