Great film
5 September 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a true story about 2000 Jewish male refugees from Hitler's Germany, who were rounded up by the British because of fear of them being German spies and shipped off to a POW camp in Australia,where they teach the Aussies in charge of them a thing or two about Jewish culture.Bob Hoskins gives another great performance as a Jewish fishmonger born in England,who's just as British as Winston Churchill,but who gets rounded up with the rest.Alternating between drama and comedy,the film strikes a nice balance between the two.
