Trivia

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 »

compelling story and great acting
10 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

In 1943 Hungary, Swedish businessman Raoul Wallenberg (Stellan Skarsgård), traveling on the train, is shocked to see Jews being killed and transported. In 1944, Wallenberg is reluctantly recruited to save the remaining Jews. In Budapest, he is the only hope for some twenty survivors in an apartment building against Nazi fanatic Ferenc Moser. The Russians are closing in. Though lies, bribes and audacity, he struggles to save the remaining 65,000 in the ghetto who suffers from one atrocity after another.

This is an amazing true story. Stellan Skarsgård does an amazing job. The plot is split between the original twenty and the thousands in the ghetto. I think it could be more intense if he goes from place to place without concentrating on a specific group of Jews. It could be a rolling trip from hell as he tries to stop one atrocity after another.
