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

Compelling Story
25 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Walking with the Enemy is a gripping tale of a horrible time in history. This emotionally wrenching movie is a unique re-telling of a real life story. I recommend watching this movie but caution you, if you do watch the film, please make sure you have plenty of Kleenex on hand to wipe away the tears you are sure to shed. This movie was interesting because it reveals the courage it took to impersonate a Nazi in order to save the lives of innocent people. It is sad to think of the heartache people had to live through and the lives that were lost due to demonic acts of inhumanity committed because of hate and a false sense of importance.
