A good movie

At first, I wasn't really enthousiast about this flick. It seemed rather oversentimental but since I kept hearing good things about it, I thought I should check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a really solid WWII drama. The best thing about is the way they handled the main characters, the 2 kids. Indeed, it was never condescending and they never sound smarter than they should be. Everythin... read more

Extremely underrated!

This film is one of the most emotional and heartbreaking films that I have ever seen before. This film is really beautiful at the same time because it teaches us that people who are supposed to be enemies can be friends at the same time like normal people can. This film showed us the unusual way of the holocaust because two of the four I have seen are true stories. I mostly thought this was quite ... read more

This is such an amazing story. I always enjoy a good war movie fiction or not and this really is one of the ones at the top of the tier. The acting, the plot, the characters, and the cinematography are all phenomenal aspects of this heart-wrenching movie. Asa Butterfield shows he has skills at such a young age. We know he is gonna to be an amazing adult actor one day. Vera Farmiga and David Thewli... read more

The most disturbing 12 movie I've ever seen

“'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas' covers the horror of the World War II Nazi extermination camp. I wasn't expecting something this disturbing or unpleasant. This is the most disturbing 12 rated movie I've ever seen.

The movie focuses on 8 year old Bruno (Asa Butterfield) who has to move to Poland with his family as his father Ralf (David Thewlis) has been promoted to SS-Obersturmbannführer Commandant. At his new home, he meets 8 year old Shmuel (Jack Scanlon), a Jewish prisoner.

The movie ends where Bruno tries to help Shmuel find his father and digs under the fence blocking them off, disguised as a Jew. Bruno sees the truth about the c” read more

"Watched May 20th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "We're not supposed to be friends, you and me, we're meant to be enemies - did you know that?" - Bruno I had The Boy in the Striped Pajamas on my shelf for a while, but put off watching it as I saw The Pianist in February and I wanted to put some space between them because Holocaust movies are so emotionally draining to watch, and this film was even more draining than I had expected - it was about a boy who's Nazi father runs a concentration camp, "
