Tom Hulce turns in yet another stellar performance as "Shadowman"! From the moment he first appears on screen until the last second he has the viewer in his grip. You want to know all about "Shadowman" and you want him helped. Tom's Polish accent is perfect and his ability to take us into the world of abuse and neglect inflicted on him and other Jews during WWII is remarkable.
A film hard to locate (only released in Holland and Europe), it's well worth the trouble needed to find it.
