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.
