This thought-provoking drama was perfectly cast .
Having lost most of my family to the Polish/Jewish holocaust, anything below a five for this film is total disrespect and an insult to a phenomenal humanitarian film.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was in turns sad, lighthearted, painful, touching, uplifting and more. Solid performances by all. geoffrey Rush is always good, Emily watson's transformation was great- and I especially loved the scenes between leisl and Rudy.
wow ! go see this movie
wonderful-a heart warming/heartbreaking movie. one of a handful in my life I would watch again
Excellent story! Very well acted by all the cast. Really. Felt I was there. Never stops to amaze me how the people of this era thought so differently than we do. Don't think most people today would be capable of rising to the occassion in such a manner as so many of them.
BRILLIANT - Best film I've seen this year and there have been other very good ones.
A tragedie of the Second World War that presents a narrative from the German people's perspective....a reverse Anne Frank story....quite moving. A tail of survival at its best and the resilience of a person throughout the emotional obstacles thrown at her by fate....
I cannot recall in my life seeing a more moving film. The audience could not move at the end of the showing.
