Did You Know?


According to Nina Lagergren, Raoul's sister, Raoul had become increasingly frustrated over not being able to do anything about the unbearable scenes he had been witnessing. In the winter if 1942 the two spent an evening at a private film show put on by the British embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, where Pimpernel Smith was playing; she claimed "on the way home he told me that was just the kind of thing he would like to do." Two years later Wallenberg carried out just the same exploits as his role-model on a rescue mission in Budapest. See more »

As usual real facts don't appeal to the public
14 June 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I review this movie having watched it diagonally (as we say in french)but I have downloaded it and I'm adding English subtitles to follow the story correctly.

Anyway as a previous reviewer says it's a shame to see how such a story is not viewed by a greater audience.

These are facts without the usual melodramatics so consciously added by American directors.

Perhaps the movie should have been more explicit in the end credits about the facts that it is proved now that the Soviets have murdered that man although they pretended it was not the case. From the beginning his arrest was unlawful and the attitude of the Russians should have been condemned strongly.The allies did not want to hurt the Russians and observed the same attitude they had with the Katin murders.

But what can we expect from a country which is the equivalent of the Nazi regime and which has not change since the Stalin period in spite of their denials?

Today the only remaining interrogation is when did Wallenberg die. There are still searches but they are impaired by the obstacles put to the researchers to consult properly all the archives available and of course many compromising ones must have been deliberately destroyed...

Personally as I wrote in the forum, I feel terribly concerned by those events, my grand parents having disappeared in 1944 in Budapest while the Nazis were fleeing the country.

Altogether, the different scenes I've watched show these events coldly and the actors are very convincing in their different parts.
