[carrying his son through the camp]

''You are such a good boy. You sleep now. Dream sweet dreams. Maybe we are both dreaming. Maybe this is all a dream, and in the morning, Mommy will wake us up with milk and cookies. Then, after we eat, I will make love to her four or five times. If I can.''

This is one of those movies that have a lasting effect on you. After watching it, I found that it has less to do with the Holocaust and more to do with the human feelings and the beautiful relationship of a father and his son.

" Date: 5/22/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: I have seen this movie a couple of times in my life and the movie is still fantastic. I know some people feel like that this movie is overrated because the movie is set during the Holocaust and it feels wrong to use humor during a dark time in history. I do love all the characters and the movie does a great job on mixing comedy and drama. This movie will make you both cry and laugh at the same time. The movie shows that even the cruelty of life c"
