Quotes

Arnost Lustig: Weiner's life story expressed some features of our time. He is not only a hero he is a hero of our time. He is a hero of time that creates millions of cowards, millions of indifferent people and you cannot blame them. People are not born to be heroes. People were born to live their lives as useful and as comfortable as possible and this makes millions of people indifferent. They are sorry when someone is killed, but they would be more sorry if they were killed. So they don't care, they don't ...

An Interesting take on a common type of documentary
22 December 2002 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I have seen many documentaries in which a survivor returns to his or her place of internment. These films (especially "The Last Days") have the rare ability to both capture the past and show its affect on the present. If "Fighter" was simply another version of these types of films, it would have been one of the poorer examples; however, this film does something that none of the other films in the survivor series does: it questions the survivor, and does not simply accept his story as true. This very tough role in the film is taken on by Jan's friend and fellow survivor. Their philosophical banter and semantical games are what this film worth the time. They turn what is really a sad journey into some strange "Grumpier Old Men" sequel. I have to say that the film was much different than I expected, but what I got in place was perhaps more meaningful than what I wanted. 7/10
