This movie was made after a novel written by Doina Jela. In the opening of the premiere night in Romania, Doina Jela told the viewers a short but painful story. "German kids were made to see the horrors of the jewish camps from Auschwitz, to remember and learn, she said. This is why they are where they are, and we (the Romanians) are where we are. You should leave this room remembering that the man, Franz Tandara, is filled with true remorse and pain. It would be the biggest mistake to condemn him just for beign courageous enough to confess..."
I left the room with the exact these thoughts and the wish to see the movie again. It hurts, but then again truth hurts.
