Storyline

As the end of the Second World War approaches and the Soviet Red Army is advancing, a group of concentration camp inmates is helped to escape by a Polish doctor. They hide in a wood where they meet other fugitives, who have been there for months, constantly in fear of being discovered. Out of fear of the German army patrols, they do not dare to leave the forest, even as the food supplies run low. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

simple movie about bad war
4 September 2003 | by jamrokSee all my reviews

If you are intrested in the way the movies are made, this film can be interesting. A simple story, stereotypes, every scene can be predicted, camera operator's work - also.

The film is about refugees from concentration camp, and a "Robin Hood-like" village. There are some dialogues in Polish, but that's bad Polish.
