Trivia

The party scene is supposed to be set in Austria in spring, however it was shot in Budapest during winter. It snowed heavily the previous day and the art department had to melt the snow before the shoot. See more »

Goofs

There is a Volkswagen Beetle car painted black used by the Nazis. The model shown in the movie has a wide rear window which was not introduced to this car until the late 1950s. Also, it would not be entirely correct to use this car as used in the movie because the initial production from 1941 to 1945 consisted of only a handful of units. See more »

Quotes

Paul Ricken: A good photographer must know how to paint with light.
Francesc Boix: That is cheating.
Paul Ricken: This is art.
Paul Ricken: Some pictures have to be touched up. Some others, only the staging. Human beings are malleable.

An extremely underrated film. A must watch.
22 February 2019 | by amodsandeepaSee all my reviews

A film that brilliantly portays the true horrors committed by the Nazis and how the victims fought back. The filmography is quite elegant and so was the acting. The 6.5 rating(at the time of writing) is quite an understatement.
