Storyline

The entire family of a 6-year-old Anna dies in the mass coordinated execution of Jews. The mother covers up Anna with her own body, and the girl miraculously survives. For the next few hundred days Anna hides in the disused chimney at the Nazi Commandant's office. From her shelter she watches as life passes her by until the village is liberated from the Nazi. In these inhuman conditions Anna not only survives but keeps her humanity. Many factors help her: memories from the life swept away by war, the cultural foundations laid by the parents and a friend who saves her from loneliness. Written by SAGa

An 8 because original, but limited
4 June 2019 | by rmypmaSee all my reviews

It's a moving story.. And unique as a film, in my experience. It's relatively short, and closely follows the 6 year old Anna as she attempts to survive in an abandoned school in the midst of wehrmacht, resistance fighters, etc. It's apparently far behind the frontline and so relatively quiet, there is no fighting or action in the movie. There are some moments of suspense, but all is composed of short cuts of a few minutes.. After which the screen fades to black, and onto another scene. I felt some scenes could definitely have been extended.. Nonetheless there were memorable parts, the wehrmacht party for instance was fascinating and together with other scenes suggested magic realism.
