As a person who likes to study history, especially the years from the end of WWI to the end of WWII, this movie is a great must see. From the all-star cast to the boldness of the message the movie delivered, The Mortal Storm is a definite movie classic. This movie was one of the first anti-Nazi movies released prior to the U.S.'s entry into WWII. MGM was very brave in making such a statement, and the fact that MGM movies were banned in Germany after this movie was released really shows the impact it made.
There is a little of everything in this movie: romance, intrigue, drama, and suspense. It is appropriate for movie viewers of all ages, and might be a great way to teach young people about WWII. If you are a classic movie lover, The Mortal Storm is a great choice for you.
