Powerful statement of human compassion
12 March 2001 | by Trillian55See all my reviews

In black and white and with production values less than ideal, film seems "of the era", as if you're really there in 1944. This neo-realism, along with a well-told story of human compassion in the face of personal danger, makes the film well-deserving of its Academy nomination for short film.
