Just some questions for any Night Porter experts!
Spoilers, perhaps, though I haven't seen it all the way thru!
Ok, I watched this on DV-R, I kinda fell asleep, it kept on re-playing from beginning to end and I got confused as far as beginning & ending (still haven't seen the end scenes yet!) - I saw the scene where Max brings a box with a head in it - who was that? And why does he present it to Charlotte Rampling?
Also, why are the Germans 'investigating" Max and when they say 'File' her away, do they mean kill her, before she can testify? Were these like the Nazi trials when they found SS guards & brought them to the Hague to punish them for rape or murder of WWII victims? And why do they even give Max a 'choice' to turn himself in, why don't they just arrest him? AND, do they want him to kill Charlotte Rampling's character, so she can not testify?
This movie was weird. Was she suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, was that the point of their relationship 13 years later?
And how old was she supposed to be in the Concentration camp? Like under 16? Because 13 years later, she looks like a grown 30+ year old woman!
Any help would be appreciated!
