Tough Movie to Watch-Provocative Ending (No Spoiler Here!)
From the beginning one knows this is not going to be a walk in the park. The movie exudes heaviness wrapped in the antisemitism of the time, the country and the characters.
Layered with numerous subplots about brother-brother relationship, the role of the church, the morals of the people, the dreariness of rural living in Poland-the main peeling of the onion unfolds in the last few minutes and the results are spellbinding.
The twists and turns kept me engrossed and I found the acting so good that I had to remind myself that this was not a documentary. Having said that we were reminded by a poster that this is based on actual events, indeed that made it even more provocative and upsetting.
It's the kind of movie that will have you thinking about it for along time.
