Cristina-ryan25 Amazing movie! watched it several times and enjoyed it each time.
ilhanacusto So powerful and touching. it tells us the real human story and destiny. it is not fiction or unreal created sitution. it shows us what the history was and different human sufferings that we sometimes neglect. a man must ask himself how evil and horrible animal or devil people can be, I quess war creates that. i feel pity for all those people who suffered hollocaust and war. may peace be on all
artemis1616 it can be hard to steel one's nerves for a film about a subject as heavy as the holocaust, but i urge you to do so. this is an incredibly moving film and adrien brody richly deserved his unexpected win for best actor. it's a tear jerker and very powerful. i can't believe the horrors and atrocities that man is capable of. i hope that we can learn to be better to one another, but that doesn't seem likely
