I will never understand how so many Jews could be slaughtered and the rest of the world stood by and never helped until near the end.I thought Anna Paquins performance was really good.Very sad and very moving.
i loved this movie.. mixed reviews i had read but i found it very well acted and great photography.. def worth a watch if u like this genre..
Very moving story. Quite sad. The acting was fine. What a heroic woman to save all those children!
An aptly named film. The acting was fine, Anna Paquin fabulous. The story line heroic! A well worth it movie.
I would recommend this to everyone. It's important that we remember people like Irena. What a brave woman she was and there were so many other people like her that we don't know about it - and we... Read more should!! Anna Paquin was the perfect person to play the part of Irena.
Another fine film on the horrors of Nazism and bravery of strong souls. A fine performance by the Canadian-born Kiwi Anna Paquin who played the true life character straight up. One downside is the... Read more Hallmark cheapness that surrounds the production.
Turned it off after twenty minutes. Anna Paquins acting was flat and it just came across as darn boring! Everyone wanted me to turn it off and put something else on!
It had such possibilities but not well produced. Very flat.
I disagree with the other reviewers and thought Anna Paquin's acting was 'wooden' and unemotional.
Some good acting, especially from Anna Paquin, but as a film it fails to be gripping or particularly memorable, largely because there is no real structure or shape to the story. No crescendo, no denouement... Read more. It simply describes what happened - and that's that.
What a great story. Very sad. Anna Paquin was wonderful. Very moving.
