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 really enjoyed this movie. A great way to find out some of history. The compassion some people had. The hard decisions that had to be made....to survive. Great characters and story line. Be prepared for a few tears.
Wonderful acting by the once little girl who lived down the road from us in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. Couldn't hear a Kiwi accent, just a neutral accent. All the actors were excellent. What a brave woman... Read more Irena was and nice to see that she was still alive in her 99th year after marrying the love of life.
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.
A fabulous movie mad even more moving by the "real" star of the movie and her tribute to all the mothers who lost their children or cared for children as a result of the war. I spoke to a German... Read more mother who was a child herself at this time and she said they were unaware of any such horrors or stories. Atrocities were hidden and covered up very touching story well portrayed by our own Anna Paquin
It ain't no Schindler's List. Worthy but - to be honest - a bit dull. It often feels like a TV movie. Predictably scripted and filmed in a very straightforward style. A cast of minor stars adopt... Read more a range of ... interesting ... European accents. But stick with it - the story it records is an important one, and the film does get better as it progresses.
It's good. And the story is well worth telling in this time where so many people are ignorant of what went on in Europe during the second world war.
I had never heard of this brave lady. So enjoyed the movie, performances were good, story line excellent and I cried!!
