Sensitive and well acted, but a bit shallow
A young conscientious objector from Germany -- back in the days when there was still compulsive national service-- serves his term in Oscwiescim running errands for a holocaust survivor, and falls in love with a local girl who wants to escape the mediocrity of the Polish boondocks. This movie is well shot and acted, but the plot is too predictable. Of course, the old guy is grumpy (and not really a great humanitarian who welcomes the idealistic lad), and the young couple grapples with a bit of anti-German sentiment. That's what I expected from the opening credits, and that's what this movie delivers. The fact that the male and female leads are a bit too toothsome detracts from the plausibility of the romance and adds to the predictability of the plot.
