Storyline

A powerful new film inspired by a true story. This feature follows the heroic lives of a world leader and a young man swept up in the horrors of WWII. Both men are from Hungary--a country and German ally that had been spared the atrocities orchestrated by Hitler throughout much of Europe. As the war reaches its climax, Germany begins to doubt the loyalties of the Hungarian leadership-in particular Regent Horthy (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley). The Regent tries to navigate his country between the growing terror of Nazi Germany and the oppressive threat of communist Russia. He is ultimately faced with ceding power to another political party or accepting the execution of his son. As the crisis unfolds, thousands of his citizens are forced underground or put into ghettos. One of them is a young man named Elek Cohen (Jonas Armstrong) who is separated from his family and determined to find them. Aided by the woman he loves (Hannah Tointon), Elek disguises himself as a Nazi SS officer ... Written by Liberty Studios

Loved this movie but it has some flaws
11 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie, loved the story, though the lead was great. I was pleased with the rest of the cast, they were all good, and Ben Kingsley, is always amazing.

I liked learning a bit more about the history of what happened in Hungary and Austria and their relationship with the Natzi's and Russians.

The story was captivating, exciting thought at points seemed to be a bit of a stretch, as if it were too embellished and had gone 'too Hollywood'.

This is a highly polished movie, and while that should not be a criticism, it is allegedly and indie film. Someone or group has highly funded this movie to push it through. It will be in theaters in a few months as it has been scooped up for distribution.

It's not your typical hollocaust, it has a very different story, but be prepared for the usual graphic depiction of the horrors of war.
