In 1942 his parents and brother are deported and exterminated in Treblinka, but Marcel and his wife Tosia can hide with a friendly Polish couple till in 1944 the Russian army liberates them.

Silhouette
27 June 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Description of an existence - page of cruel history. Facts and words. And a cultural myth. It is not only adaptation of biography. Marcel Ranicki may be everyone. A silhouette in the autumn of a century who fight for an ideal.So, no masterpiece, nothing spectacular. But a very important occasion to discover the world more that shadows collection. A film about roots of sense. Steps of exception, behind ordinary rules or soft lies. Good acting and sensitive solutions to describe the reality of politics and answers of a man for who culture is real religion. Sad and melancholic, delicate and precise, , base of a public image in German literary life, this movie must be good occasion to meditate at the soul of things.
