Dutch detective helps girl to get to Israel @end of WW2.
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this might have been Hart's last film prior to her entering the Convent. She had been a young Jewish girl sent to one of the camps. The war was winding down and she was able to get away from the Nazis. Well some how or other she met this Dutch detective and he promised to help her. It was a very well acted movie and I cannot say much more as it would constitute a spoiler practically in scene by scene. I am disappointed not to find Lisa on any movie channels and the same applies to stores selling movies. It was a poignant rendering what I presume many people I have been come in contact with for the last 4 years. Lee
