Decent flick, not as powerful as other WWII movies out there but still gets the message across. The acting was great for the most part but I thought the pacing was a little sketchy. It felt genuine, which I appreciate a lot.

Roman Polanski may be a pervert, but he is an amazing film maker. It'... read more

" Notes: Roman Polanski is one of my favorite directors and still in the 2000's he keeps making great pictures. Indeed, this story was harrowing and Adrien Brody also gave a huge performance. Still, I have to admit it, at first, when I saw that this movie was the best Polanski has made, according to the IMDb ratings, I used to scratch my head a little bit. I mean, do the people have any idea what this guy had done previously in his career? However, I have re-watched it recently and, indeed, I ha"
