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>

Compelling drama...
23 December 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 12/23/2001 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Karel Kachyna): Compelling drama about a town of Jewish artists & performers kept from the Nazi concentration camps as long as they met their expectations. When a french mime artist, played well by Tom Courteney, arrives he starts creating pieces of art that disturb the Nazi party in power. The relationship between Courtenay and the children who become part of his plays is the core of the story and despite some slow moments this movie keeps you interested until the end.
