      David Mattin BBC.com A case study in why Holocaust movies are so difficult to get right. Rated: 2/5 Oct 17, 2006 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian It's a sucrose period piece that somehow averts its gaze from the brutal reality of Nazi genocide, and manages to conjure a fatuous feelgood happy ending. Rated: 1/5 Oct 14, 2006 Full Review Robert Hanks Independent (UK) Its intentions are doubtless good, but it ends up exploiting the Holocaust for cheap suspense. Rated: 1/5 Oct 14, 2006 Full Review Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film The most mawkish and shallow take on the holocaust committed to screen in many a long year. Rated: 1/5 Jun 13, 2008 Full Review Doug Brunell Film Threat Despite some tense scenes, this movie still falls fairly flat. Rated: 3/5 May 9, 2006 Full Review Steve Schneider Orlando Weekly Put-upon Jews weep on cue or stare defiantly into the camera, spouting impromptu speeches about getting some of their own back one day; all the while, violins wail in the background.

      Audience Member This has "TV Movie" written all over the film. Some dodgy acting, a low budget, poorly directed at times, yes there is a lot wrong with it. There is also some great scenes in the film though which does manage to create tension - and the actual story is pretty good especially as it is based on a true story, even better. The bottom line though - the TV Movie directing a budget kills what has potential. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I couldn't get past the lascivious nazi trying to get the woman to join the lebensborn. It was so gross and cringy that I had to stop. Never made it to the "Fairy tale ending" others have mentioned. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best WWII movies with perfect matching casting depicting the holocaust and tragedy of Hungarian Jews. No technical errors whatsoever , highly recommended. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie kept me going. I could not have guessed what the ending was going to be, and also a good reminder of the monsters, the Nazi era, and the evil they perpretated. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A handsome Holocaust melodrama hobbled by a transparent and cartoonish script. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member excellent movie, everyone should see and remember the history it is based on Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
