When Franz Jägerstätter stood, on his own, against the Nazi machine, he was doing so neither for fame nor martyrdom.
This was merely one man taking a stand because he knew that he was right and literally everyone else was wrong.
Only long after his death did he become celebrated for demonstrating that small, unhistoric acts can change the world.
In Terrence Malick's poignant, beautifully shot but unnecessarily long A Hidden Life, Jägerstätter is played with great empathy by August Diehl.
It first alights upon him in his native Austrian village where he falls in love at first sight with Fani (Valerie Pachner).
They marry and bring up three young girls on a farm with a wonderfully picturesque mountain backdrop.
Politics is far from their thoughts until Franz is called up for military training and, at that point, he realises that he cannot join in with songs which celebrate Hitler.
This is a point of conscience which festers into deliberate dissent against the Nazi leader and the war he inflicted upon Europe.
His stance endangers his life and ostracises him and his family from their close-knit village.
Diehl convinces as Jägerstätter, portraying him as a quiet but determined man who is resolute but undemonstrative in his beliefs.
Indeed, in most instances when he is pressed, he maintains silence rather than have a shouting match despite the most intense and, at times, brutal provocation.
Pachner is equally impressive as the desperate wife who fears for her husband's life but is steadfast in her support, despite knowing the consequences.
However, Malick waters down the effect of quality acting by stretching A Hidden Life out for far too long.
Two hours would have been more than ample to tell the story but it is just short of three.
If it had been tighter, I might have been naming it one of my films of the year but I can't because of its continued repetition of themes. That's a shame.

Reasons to watch: A very different take on the Second World War with a stunning backdrop
Reasons to avoid: Far far too long

Laughs: None
Jumps: None
Vomit: None
Nudity: None
Overall rating: 7.5/10

Did you know? On June 2007, Pope Benedict XVI issued an apostolic exhortation declaring Franz Jägerstätter a martyr. On 26 October 2007, he was beatified in a ceremony held by Cardinal José Saraiva Martins at the New Cathedral in Linz. His feast day is the day of his baptism, 21 May.

The final word. August Diehl: "It was a huge, long preparation, most of which was learning these tools that farmers don’t use anymore. Looking back it was very much like living on a farm, working all day, doing real farm work, and being filmed." Indiewire
