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 ...

Phenomenal
19 January 2007 | by (Portland. OR USA) – See all my reviews

This film, handed to me by the sister of the director was a very moving and intriguing piece. I knew that the personal histories of people, Jews in particular fleeing the ravages of WWII and the terror of the holocaust were numerous and possibly compelling, but to see the two stories, the experiences of Jan and Arnost, unfolding before us with such clarity and passion and to realize with such immediateness that their stories were still being written as we witnessed their trek was a truly awesome feat of cinema. I really appreciated Mr. Bar-Lev's style in letting the story tell itself, he was almost invisible in the film and made no attempt to shift focus from the story onto himself. I had an opportunity to meet him and his great work truly stems from the fact that he is a great person. bravo.
