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

Terrible Film
7 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm usually a big fan of World War II movies since my grandparents were killed in the Shoah, but this film offered nothing but disappointment.

The plot was extremely disjointed and it hardly told a coherent narrative, nearly everyone I watched it with was extremely confused throughout the movie. But, he plot wasn't the only issue, I expect movies about the Shoah to be historically accurate, but this was about 80% fiction with only minor fragments of truth here and there.

I would honestly say that the low quality of this film is an insult to the 6.5 Million Jews murdered by Adolf Hitler. The producers should be ashamed of themselves.
