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. The holocaust provides the ultimate context, that brings and highlights the story and adds yet another deep dimension to the movie. No such piece of art has ever before comb... read more

A Jewish man has a wonderful romance with the help of his humour, but must use that same quality to protect his son in a Nazi death camp.

" 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"
