Fine, if predictable, tale of Jews during World War II
2 June 2003 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The film version that I saw was in English but was obviously made with the help of Danish filmmakers. It takes place in Denmark of 1943. Hitler's Nazis have taken over the country and it is almost time for the Jewish population to begin being deported. A young Danish resistance fighter (D.B. Sweeney) is wounded in an act of war and is found by a teenage Jewish girl, Sarah, who takes him to her home in secret. When her father discovers the hidden guest, he wants the young rebel out of the house. But, gradually, the two men grow to admire and help each other. Along the way, Sarah and her young resister fall in love. Circumstances change quickly, however, and result in a crisis that requires the courage and intelligence of both young lovers and the people surrounding them. This is a fine addition to the repertoire of films with a Jewish/World War II focus. Sweeney, in one of his earlier roles, is a charmer. Although the movie may be difficult to find (libraries may have), this motion picture is, nevertheless, worth a look.
