Your Review

A new view of Nazi Germany and it’s attitude towards Jews. An innocent and Naive eight year old boy does not understand the separation or the way that Jews are treated.

We see him try and figure out what is going on and desperately try and reconcile the words of his father with what he sees for himself.

We see how most German’s believe things are and how they feel when the truth hits them.

The whole movie accentuates the deceit and propaganda and how it compares to the facts.

A good movie, but certainly not happy or funny.
