User Reviews

A hard-hitting, unforgettable drama, in which hope prevails.
26 December 2019 | by CitizenDeviSee all my reviews

Als Hitler das rosa Kaninchen stahl is a beautiful film. The performances are absolutely great all around, and Riva Krymalowski is an outstanding lead. The movie is full of admirable dialogue, and the direction as well as the cinematography are elegantly done too. Also, thanks to the very good editing the film moves along at a seemingly perfect pace. This is an important story and it works well as a movie suitable for both children and adults. As an adult you'll definitely get more out of it overall, but I think it's something children should see and will get much of value out of. Sadly I missed the first ten to fifteen minutes of it because my mum insisted on having nachos despite the long queue. I'll catch up on what happened in those early minutes of the film once it comes out. Please try to see this one, whoever's reading. I can't imagine that movie not captivating you, yes you, as well. Every single thing works on a wholly believable emotional level. It's a film that hits hard and lets you feel how painful having to face the ugliness of humanity at such an early age must be. It's some kind of adventure family movie with a bit of comedy in one way, but mainly a hard-hitting drama you won't forget any time soon.
