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 »

Quotes

Sonson: There is something in each of us that makes us do extraordinary things, for Sonson it was his immense and eternal love for his wife Florence.

Beware of inadequate low ratings of the movie! You are risking to miss a masterpiece!
1 April 2019 | by alexandrovnSee all my reviews

A great war drama! Based on a true story! Brilliant performance of Harvey Keitel the other actors. Amongst many other things the movie contains two very important messages:

1. "It could happen again! "

2. "An ordinary man could be a hero and achieve impossible things in unusual circumstances"

I would strongly recommend it!
