Excellent Film
20 May 2005 | by diggergirl2004See all my reviews

I was only 13 when I saw this movie, but I still remember it after all of these years. I think it was one of the movies that I never got over because it hit home as to how much the Nazi's destroyed the lives of countless families.

Many of the actors in the cast made their first professional appearances in this film. Some have gone on to successful careers, although many of them stated in interviews that they would never forget the experience of working on this film.

The cinematography is phenomenal and the depictions of life under Nazi rule quite accurate. I gained a new respect for holocaust survivors after this film. When you see this film, you realize that the horror and fear was something that these people faced every day.

Shortly after watching it, my grandparents told me how my uncle managed to live through a Nazi Prison Camp. If you are a Schindler's List fan, you will probably enjoy this movie. I recommend it to anyone who not only wants to see what happened, but feel it as well.
