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

In the final ghetto battle, one of the German soldiers fires a panzerfaust, which causes an explosion on the ground in front of resistance fighters. The panzerfaust used a shaped-charge, firing a stream of molten metal inside a tank, and had no high explosive or fragmentation variant. 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.

a Well-made war drama
6 November 2016 | by moidoonaSee all my reviews

A very interesting story during the war. It might be a hidden history that we have never learned or heard about some of unidentified heroes during the world war 2. Lots of people are wounded, hurt and dead during this awful period, but also lots of people who were unknown for their heroic actions, have saved their country and people. While I was watching this movie, I realized that the real hero in the history were the survivors. Through the world worst history, they have continued to make their own history which can change our live today. I hope all of you can feel the same feeling that I've learned by watching this story and I highly recommend to watch this amazing movie.
