Rocking the Boat

March 28, 2010

The Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung (Centre for Contemporary Histroy, ZZF) in Potsdam has a very interesting internet portal for documents, discussions and current research on contemporary history.    One feature of this is discussions of contemporary history as it appears in popular media.  Late last year I had the pleasure of writing a review of Richard Curtis’s 2009 film “The Boat that Rocked” for them, which has now been published in the film review section (blurb is in German – review is in English). 

In short: as far as interesting engagement with the past goes, it did not rock.
