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

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

Description: 'The Boy In The Striped Pajamas' is a fictional story that offers a unique perspective on how prejudice, hatred and violence affect innocent people, particularly children, during wartime.

Though the two are separated physically by a barbed wire fence, their lives become inescapably intertwined. The imagined story of Bruno and Shmuel sheds light on the brutality, senselessness and ...

"14.7. Miksi ne puhuvat saksalaiset puhuvat englantia natsisaksassa toisen maailmansodan aikaan? Eipä se alkumetrien jälkeen ole suuri miinus, kun tiiviiseen pakettiin kasattu Poika Raidallisessa Pyjamassa on koskettava(kin) tarina naiiviudesta ja siitä, kuinka lapset näkevät maailman eri silmin. Loppuratkaisu on melko ilmeinen, mutta kaikesta huolimatta koskettava. "

“its been proven that the reds created the gas chambers which makes this movie inaccurate which means all titles for this movie should be stripped the moral of this story is about a jewish point of view and not of a realistic point of view which a lot of movies sadly depics sadly from lack of producers” read more
