Dark Story In A Dark Time To Educate And Remind Us
Verified purchase
This is a dark story set in a dark time. Characters are complex, believable and well portrayed.

It delivers some emotional sledge hammer blows throughout of the awful things that took place in Nazi occupied Europe in world war 2. Not in a gory, violent or repetitive way but in terms of brutal shock impact and real pain. The scale is small following the struggles of one Polish Jewish family to hide from the Nazis but it is up there among the very best films about the Holocaust. The oppression and fear stays with you after you have watched it.

The story and interlinked characters fates are emotionally played out and developed throughout the film. Quite late on there are some hard reveals.

On the one hand it makes you ashamed of the human race and the on the other in is a reminder of the importance of embracing the freedoms and joy of not living in an oppressive society. Unfortunately of course many people today live in fear of what the day will bring.

Ultimately this is one of those films that did touch me but in a dark way.
This isn’t feel good stuff and sometimes I wonder why we as people chose to make or watch such depressing things for entertainment. Of course films like this are about learning rather than entertainment. The film form being easier to access than a museum or dusty history book.

being a witness to the telling

powerful, moving film and sharing in the telling by listening to the story is a responsibility we each have. Illustration of urgent choices made in a time of war that had huge consequences. Excellent sensitive portrayal, powerful acting and intelligent production. I didn't have any issues with sound.

Unwatchable for me
Verified purchase
When the lead protagonist establishes them self as useless even in protecting her own small children within the first few minutes I decided i don't need this. If you are strong and capable you might endure this but I only lasted 15 minutes.

Sounds

Very low sound diction so hard to hear/follow plot in parts.

Whisper whisper whisper!
Pretty poor script, and rather turgid and slow. However the sound quality is appalling.
The director allows the actors to whisper and mumble, whilst the background effects of feet walking, doors opening, traffic et cetera are all unbelievably loud. Thus making it impossible to understand most of what is being said. Whoever did the sound balance should be shot! And no subtitles on the DVD!!!! WHY? 😡
