Storyline

The main character Joanna (Urszula Grabowska), waiting in vain for a letter from her husband who is in an Oflag, gives shelter to a little Jewish girl whose mother was caught during a round-up. Thus she becomes burdened with a secret she cannot reveal to anyone, even to her relatives. Joanna knows that she cannot keep Rose with her as she is already under observation, but she fails to find a hiding spot for Rose and is forced to become the lover of a German officer in return for protection. Forced by necessity, she has to cooperate with her enemies, becoming a traitor in the eyes of "her people". The final, symbolic image is suggestive - in a tearful and religious manner - of the fact that sheltering little Roza was Joanna's personal torture referring to Golgotha. However, the deeper meaning of that story is perverse and bitter: hiding the child was even more dangerous because of Joanna's "own people", mutually controlling the patriotic decency.

One of the gem of movies
10 January 2018 | by deeptheperfectSee all my reviews

It's very hard to find a movie which is so heartfelt and mesmerizing. Kudos to the director and whole cast and crew for such an amazing movie. Was never a fan or hater of Hitler but after watching this movie I realized that if his action would have brought such atrocities to a simple little girl then its better to have an opinion than never. About this movie, great directing except the ending could have had lots of possibilities. The cast was very good and for the little girl Sara Knothe.. hat's off girl. The story was 9 out of 10 as I rated already. This is indeed a kind of movie to recommend to other people.
