Quotes

George Tabori: In Hungary, we had our own Nazis, but they were much shabbier than those in Germany. Look here: the shirts weren't properly ironed, the collars were stained. Look, this Mr. Usicky: he wears a brown boot and a black one. That would have been inconceivable with the Germans.

A different Holocaust film
8 December 1998 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Based on the semi-biographical writing of George Tabori, inspired by his mother, "My Mother's Courage" offers one of the more surrealistic views of the Holocaust I have ever seen. It is an excellent follow-up to "The Nasty Girl."
