Single White Female shares house during Holocaust
29 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Set in 1945 Poland, this movie is about a lonely woman who ends up hiding a Jewish woman in her cellar, to whom she gradually becomes very attached. Slow-paced, grim, psychologically intense, sexy: in other words, a European drama! The acting and cinematography are good, and it does a good job conveying the claustrophobic atmosphere to the viewer. The Pole is a cellist and the Jew is a dancer, so there is some cultural entertainment along the way, and of course the Nazi and later Communist oppression keep the pressure on. But the movie kind of drags, and as it concludes you don't feel that there was much meaning in it all, though in a way that adds realism.
