Based on the best selling novel by John Boyne. Berlin, 1942 - Eight-year-old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country.

All he knows is that his father was promoted and he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no-one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pajamas

Bruno's friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation, as their secret meetings result in a friendship that has startling and devastating consequences.

I was desperately hoping for some sort of happy ending,but there isnt one.This film is very thought provoking and is a lesson to everyone.I was shocked by this film,because it involved children,only watch it if you are not easily upset.

 Superb Film

An 8 year old during the war, how can it be explained to him and how can his young mind comprehend it. We get both sides of it here as both 8 year old boys don't know why or what exactly is happening.
The story follows Bruno the German boy as he moves to his new home near a consentration camp. He makes friends with a young Jewish boy who is a prisoner in the camp but neither seems to realise exactly what is going on.
It's a brilliantly written story, it develops and flows well with great characters and excellent depth. It has an innocence to which is only known in a child's mind.
The acting is fantastic, all performances are of the highest calibre and a great deal of applause must be given to the young boys who played the leading roles. Superb acting.

Overall: This is a Remarkable movie. It brings the horros of WWII and the Holocaust in the form of the most innocent mind. It's written brilliantly ,directed superbly and acted on an Oscar level.
Can't Miss!!
