Trivia

The "memoirs" on which this film was based - Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years, by Belgian-born, US-based writer Misha Defonseca - were determined to be fake in February 2008. The author admitted in an interview with Belgian newspaper "Le Soir" that "It's not the true reality, but it is my reality. There are times when I find it difficult to differentiate between reality and my inner world." See more »

an interesting hoax
15 May 2015 | by DogFilmCriticSee all my reviews

I had high hopes when i heard of this movie a girl lost in the woods that has help from wolves in the middle of world war two, and it was a book based on actual events my curiosity reach maximum levels...sadly i discovered that the author of the book Monique De Wael aka Misha Defonseca faked the hole thing and it was a sit back.

The story starts really good,Mathilde Goffart is amazing in this film and brings brilliantly Misha to life, she was the high point of this film she truly wins the audience with her performance, sadly there are some scenes in the movie that are just hard to believe their true and one can see why this story is so unbelievable to be true.

Still i did like this movie for all its flaws, i went knowing that this was a hoax but i saw the good and the bad and i can say its a good story if you can over look some details.

I recommend you try and judge it for yourself.

"The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense."
