Max is gay and as such is sent to Dachau concentration camp under the Nazi regime. He tries to deny he is gay, and gets a yellow label (the one for Jews) instead of pink (the one for gays). In camp, he falls in love with fellow prisoner Horst, who wears his pink label with pride.
This film, based on the theatrical production, is a moving and powerful experience. It is both emotional and intense and its power moves even a cynic to tears. While hope bounds throughout the hopeless scenario, the overwhelming feeling is desperation and despair.
Though the settings are largely historically inaccurate, they convey the mood of the era precisely.
A must see for anyone in the GLBT community or anyone with an interest in the Holocaust.
Never forget.....NEVER AGAIN!
