My brief review of the film
18 January 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

An appropriately solemn and always very compelling Holocaust era film, it is quite competently acted, especially by the child actors and actresses, who give off realistic and believable performances. In particular, Rebecca Dignam stands out as a child who the nuns take a special liking to. The plot line sounds rather ordinary but it works well, providing a fine and interesting tale. The film is, however, a bit too melodramatic, and on top of that it ends unrealistically. But for what it is, it is very good. Based on a story by Adrian Scott, it went credited to Dale Pitt due to blacklisting, but either way Robert Presnell Jr.'s screenplay is generally fine.
