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

Walking with the Enemy
17 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was captivated from beginning to the end with Walking with the Enemy--Although it clearly shows the horrors of the Holocaust taking place in Hungary, it also is a true story of hope and is ultimately a hero's journey. For this reason, it had me cheering until the end. Far too few films about the Holocaust focus on the Jewish resistance--kudos to the producers who carve out a place for one of these Jewish heroes in the history of the Holocaust. This is a true story of a young Jew brave enough to stand against Hitler's horror machine by dressing as a Nazi SS officer, rescuing men, women and children from extermination. The film opened my eyes to this little known fact --there were some Jews who stood strong against evil. What an incredible story and tribute to an amazing young man. The editing and storytelling were seamless which made the film both entertaining and yet meaningful. The cinematography was excellent. Although painful to watch, Walking with the Enemy finds a balance between hope and the truth of horror. The ending brought tears to my eyes, wow..brilliant..a slice of life story of the Holocaust I otherwise wouldn't know about. Overall , I recommend this film to a wide audience from 18-64, men and women interested in a story about an unsung hero.
