Storyline

The entire family of a 6-year-old Anna dies in the mass coordinated execution of Jews. The mother covers up Anna with her own body, and the girl miraculously survives. For the next few hundred days Anna hides in the disused chimney at the Nazi Commandant's office. From her shelter she watches as life passes her by until the village is liberated from the Nazi. In these inhuman conditions Anna not only survives but keeps her humanity. Many factors help her: memories from the life swept away by war, the cultural foundations laid by the parents and a friend who saves her from loneliness. Written by SAGa

Art film..about survival..and suffering
29 November 2018 | by vcutySee all my reviews

Superb ...this is a worth the watch film I saw this film during russia focus section in Cairo international film festival, Egypt The audience were few sadly.... But the film deserves huge audience The cinematography and direction i thought were excellent The young girl's acting was masterfully done...amazing considering thats her first role in cinema Its not a long film..no dialogue ..yet it moves ... What i found worth mentioning is that throughout all her suffering,,the litlle girl cried twich..on her moms death and her cats death... very symbolic film

Specialy when she wrapped the flag on her toe and made socks out of it....there are hard scenses but true no exaggeration Its anti nazi film of course I think all art cinema lovers should look for this film and watch it
