Storyline

Stage mime Antoine Moreau (Tom Courtenay) is compelled by the Gestapo to put on a performance for the children of Terezin, a "model" concentration camp, to convince the Red Cross observers that the camp is truly what it seems. Reluctant at first, Moreau slowly learns the true nature of the camp, including the meaning of the "transports" on which people leave. With a world-class orchestra (made up of people interned in the camp) and a cast of children, Moreau stages a show to end all shows. Written by David Albert <albert@fas.harvard.edu>

Powerful But Less-Horrific Holocaust Film
14 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another "holocaust story," and another good one on the grim subject. It isn't as well done as "Schlinder's List" but it doesn't have the overt horror scenes or the profanity of "Schindler's List" either. It makes the film more palatable, if you can call a grim subject like that "palatable." It just isn't as horrific in visuals, is all I am saying.

Nevertheless, this is still a powerful story and well-acted and photographed (color). Tom Courtenay stars and does an outstanding job. He even shows a lot of talent in the art of mime. This is good storytelling. The PG-13 rating is for nudity in here, usually the kind that gives it an R-rating.
