One House Many Tenants
20 July 2006 | by cristina-mSee all my reviews

The "House" in the title is an elegant mansion in the Ukraine that silently shelters opposing forces of World War II. One Jewish family house-sits for a General who exits stage-left very quickly for political reasons. His house sitters need to make the same quick exit into hiding, which begins their epic saga, a well acted and directed survival story that you are compelled to watch from beginning to end. I was impressed with the quality of this quiet little film that tells such a huge story of human spirit. Battle scenes of freedom fighters, aerial bombings of a train bound for freedom, frightened hungry fugitives hiding under bushes in the dirt, trusting in the kindness of strangers. The strength of spirit of these Ukrainian Jews stands in proud juxtaposition to the memory of the cruelty accredited to those notorious Ukrainian guards who manned the camps. It must be something in the water. See this film. You won't be disappointed.
