Trivia

All the scenes with Harvey Keitel were shot on Long Island, New York. Harvey Keitel befriended a ninety-year-old Holocaust survivor, with whom he frequently spent time, as a part of his preparation for playing ninety-five-year-old Hungarian Holocaust survivor Sonson Kovács. Being a dedicated method actor, Harvey had to learn walking with a cane, and with a slight limp, exactly as the real ninety-year-old Holocaust survivor. See more »

Goofs

Many of the Hungarian soldiers in the movie are seen with the SKS rifle, made evident by the folding bayonet. While this rifle was eventually adopted by the Hungarian army, it did not enter service until several years after the war. See more »

User Reviews

 
Absolutely marvellous film. Beware of negative reviews from Csendor sympathisers

My wife and I found this film to be absolutely extraordinary. This film has an amazing plot and was excellently produced. We also noticed that people whose family members committed atrocities during World War Two have been trying very hard to demolish the quality of this film in their reviews. People should be aware of the crimes of the Hungarian Csendors before the outbreak of WW2. People should witness the history. In Novi Sat, Subotica, Vojvodina, among other places, the Csendor massacred a great number of Serbs, Communists and Jews, with Hitler's backing. The Csendor were an integral part of the Nazi killing machine. They loyally picked up Jewish people in the villages and put them on the animal train into Auschwitz. The authorities should take action against Csendor sympathisers to stop their effort to whitewash history.
