True Life Escape from a Nazi Death Camp

Sobibor was one of the Nazi's death camps during World War II. The 600 Jewish laborers enslaved there yearned for their freedom and hoped to escape. The Nazi commandant had a standing order that any prisoner escapes would result in the execution of the same number of remaining prisoners. Against this terrifying backdrop, the prisoners plan a daring mass escape. They will all go, or die trying!

Featuring strong performances from Rutger Hauer, Alan Arkin, and Joanna Pacula, Escape from Sobibor is based on a true story of heroism and courage that is guaranteed to move and inspire the viewer.

 Truly powerful!

| | See all RonnieASA's reviews (3)

I saw this movie when it was first shown some 20 years ago. It deeply afected me then and when i purchased it i was worried that time had not been kind to the film.

Thankfully, i was wrong. The film is as powerful and as moving now as it was that day. In fact i would say more so as i am now much older and wiser and have much more understanding of the horrors of the holocaust.

It is a tv movie and some of the acting and filming isn't great but the principle actors are exceptional, the writing is strong and the story so gripping that these slights are easily forgotten.

Seldom has a more important film ever been made for television, and i would recommend it to anyone who wants more than traditional fare.

It's not a film to enjoy, as there is no enjoyment from such sad subject matter, but it is a film to admire and respect and care about, like the story and the people it depicts.

 Touching - Truely fantastic!

I have been looking for this on DVD for months, after watching it elsewhere. Finding it was based on a real story was brilliant enough, but what goes on in the film is amazing. I am so excited it's now available on Play, & I can't wait to get my hands on it to show the rest of my family, especially my grandad who will be most interested.

 Oscar Worthy

I saw this film at school in an RE lesson because we were learning about the Halacaust but whilst I was watching it I felt for all of the Jewish people in the film. I was touched by it. It took my breath away. It is entertaining and yet edgecational. I like many other people in my class was heavily moved by the film. When I went to research the film at home I realised that it had won NO awards. To be honest I was quite shocked because a film with the plot and emotion like this should win THE BEST PICTURE OSCAR anyday. It was fantastic. I highly recomend it. It's a film for anyone in the mood for a good night in at the movies. It is absoloutly BREATHTAKING!

 Excellant Watch

I watched this at School for R.E. or something like that. I loved it, it really catches what the Jews had to endure. It is a great watch. Recommended to anyone.

 Probably better than Schindler's List

| | See all CollectorsCorner's reviews (24)

Firstly Though Schindlers list was a excellent film and focused on more of Schindler himself,Escape from Sobibor tells the story of this death camp which in some places is very disturbing but very well filmed on probably quite a small budget compared to Schindlers list.. I personally prefer this and saw it years before spielbergs blockbuster.. This movie is more about courage and survival in which takes place in a very brutal death camp. Buy this one and it will change you forever....Acting and performance is a A+++++
