User Reviews

 
A worthy entry to the 'Death Camp' genre.
27 November 2020 | by RatedVforVinnySee all my reviews

Most Russian movies concerning WW2 are pretty reliable (and certainly watchable), although they seem to be riddled with propaganda and as 'Sobibor' does, depicts all the Germans as as murdering, cartoonish sadists . This is a shame really as they themselves, have so much more right to churn out these films than any other nation.
