A story of an orphan who is being adopted by a Jewish couple. In 1943, in Hungary's Eastern part.
3 December 2012 | by markodrenSee all my reviews

This movie is probably the best holocaust-movie ever made. Not operating with violent scenes or showing hordes of German soldiers or SS-criminals, gas chambers or concentration camps, but every single minute of the movie is full with fear, love, and struggle for a future. The shepherd's stubborn fight against his own destiny and the destiny of his people filled with so much plain human depth what is almost unbearable. I saw men crying like babies watching this movie (I must admit - I was one of them) because its beauty and tragedy are simply not conceivable. You feel hopelessly lost and helpless, but somehow being a better human being by the catharsis. The movie is also a trustworthy, authentic and accurate testimony of the destiny of hundreds of thousands of Jews from the rural countryside in Hungary. A must see.
