They gave all they had to save all they could

Dr. Jan Zabinski (Johan Heldenbergh) is the director of the Warsaw Zoo, one of the largest and most prolific zoos in 1930s Europe. He is aided by his wife, Antonina (Jessica Chastain). On September 1, 1939, the aerial bombardment of Warsaw commences as German forces storm Poland. Bombs raze the zoo cages, killing many animals while others escape into the streets. Antonina and her son Ryszard (Timothy Radford and later, Val Maloku) barely survive. As Polish resistance collapses, Dr. Lutz Heck (Daniel Bruhl), the head of the Berlin Zoo and Adolf Hitler's chief zoologist and Jan's professional rival, arrives at the zoo when Jan is away. He offers to house the prized animals and return them to Warsaw after the war. Heck later returns with Nazi soldiers to shoot the remaining animals. It becomes evident that Heck has developed a romantic interest in Antonina.

Cheating Notes

12:10 Bed scene of Antonina and her husband. We get to peek at one of her tits briefly.

59:18 Antonina reciprocates Heck's attempt to kiss her in order to distract him from the sounds being made by some Polish-Jewish kids that she's hiding from him. She doesn't really kiss him, but just puts his head on her neck. What the hell is that?

1:06:50 Heck helps Antonina reign in some bulls but he makes sure that his hands are all over her and his body is touching hers during the process.

1:22:32 Heck is about to touch Antonina on her face when her husband arrives and sees them. The couple argues because of it, then they make up and have passionate sex (very brief and non-nude).

1:42:13 Antonina comes to Heck's office, offers herself in exchange for helping her find her husband who has been arrested by the Germans. But their talk becomes heated, and Heck ends up forcing himself on Antonina and stops when she tells him the truth that he disgusts her. So yeah, this is a Failed Cheating Situation and our wife is really, for the most part, loyal to her husband. Damn it.
