‘The Deutschland series is as relevant as ever’
‘[it] ends as it told its story: thoughtfully, and with a fundamental empathy that doesn’t guarantee a happy ending but rather something better. The possibility of holding onto one’s humanity through pain and suffering and amongst forces so much larger than any one person.’ – Den of Geek
