A 'subjective' documentary, to say the least.
8 November 2001 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Dishonest account (yes, I know, a harsh opinion, but I cannot write anything else) of Jewish life in one of Polands villages before, during, and after the Second World War. I call it dishonest because Marzynski is evidently 'partial' in his attempt to paint Polish people in the most antipathetic of ways.

View this 'documentary' (which does not deserve this honorary title) if you want to be easily moved by extreme emotions, and if you don't care for historical truths and nuanced viewpoints. If, however, you believe things are not as simple as they seem at first glance, if you are interested in the complexity of reality, and in a fair outlook on human life under extreme circumstances, this movie 'Shtetl' is not for you.
