During world war 2 a Romanian peasant of Jewish faith is arrested by the local village policeman and sent to a concentration camp. In the camp, due to a mix-up, he is deemed to be of Aryan stock and he is drafted into the Waffen SS. After the war he is detained for having been a member of the SS but he is eventually released and reunited with his family. Written by
I have seen this movie maybe a 100 times, never grow tired of it.I saw this movie the first time when i was 7 years old, and it has left a mark in my memories since then. Its a enchanting love story that brings the sun out in most people, even in the darkest times. I think that this is a "must see" movie and one of Anthony Quinn's best performance ever. I just wish that the TV-channels would send this movie more often. It has inspired me in a good way and surly will do that to many others. If there is any actor i wanted to meet, it would have been Anthony Quinn. There will never be a like of him on the silver screens,,, ever. Wish that Anthony Quinn was still alive. May god bless his soul.
