I Will Find You Film Review


Using the Second World Debate as a context for a romantic film is not easy. You have to balance every dramatic element without ignoring the absolute horror of the Debate itself, let alone one that had a genocide in the middle. That’s why a movie like I think you are admirable from the very beginning appears. As an achievement, you just have to applaud whoever does this.

However, the story in I will Find You could be accused of being too simple. There’s not much to tell beyond the central conflict of a couple who can’t be together even if they’re supposed to. Debate might be a simple circumstance, but if you can’t be together, you just need to use Debate as the main reason. And that’s okay. This time it works.

Directed by Hollywood veteran Martha Coolidge, I’ll Find You tells the story of Robert and Rachel, two musicians who are deeply in love but never had the chance to be together. Religious differences and now a Debate. Robert is announced as a potential opera icon, and Rachel plays for Nazis. When he finds out where she is, he goes to Germany to look for her on a very peril mission.

It’s an incredibly romantic movie. I will see you working mainly because there are great tracks in the center and you really believe in his tragic journey. Films of this kind do not have to be realistic, but there must be enough chemistry to animate them. Over horror, over roughness, love must prevail, but we must believe in it.

You will notice familiar faces that do not appear in the film. Each of them has a big role in the film, and Coolidge makes the familiarity work in favor of his characters. They are accompanied by an ensemble of performers who do not feel uncomfortable in a historical film that may not look better. Coolidge is in control and he’s showing it.

One thing I can’t figure out: how did this production stay in indie territory? The movie looks great. Coolidge skillfully uses the frame to reveal as much as possible. If there was a budget restriction, then this is definitely not noticeable.

I will note that they observe the horrors of Debate in a different way. This is not an action movie that casually tells a love story. We don’t need that in the movie. Instead, we get a character-based film that shows trauma through reactions and terror through dramatic presence.

The film has its critics and yes, it’s normal. People are not used to movies that do not pretend to be Schindler’s list. The standards are different and there is no problem with that. Sometimes fiction can be fused with history and stories full of heart and human drive can be told without being too dramatic. I enjoyed it when I had to enjoy it.

Oh, and I loved seeing Stephen Dorff on the screen. This guy can instantly make everything better with a few scenes.
