Description: The legendary saga of two families – Jewish and Christian – in the period from 1935 to 1945. The history of man’s inhumanity to man. A story of hope in times of despair.
Review: Holocaust. How many innocent lives is that word! Cruelty, immorality and lack of tolerance for people of different ethnicity and faith. All this is actively promoted during the genocide of the Jewish people from 1935 to 1945. Mass executions, inhumane killing and unjustified violence. How much pain and suffering, humiliation and torture in concentration camps have undergone these poor people whose lives are just unexpectedly turned upside down. They had everything that a normal person should be: big happy family, respect and a decent job. But the world has for them collapsed, leaving only a wound in the soul and the pain of losing a loved one …
Very good move director of the film was used. On the example of a single family – Weiss (including all of their friends and acquaintances) to consider the terrible events of that terrible tragedy. Of course, these events caught people by surprise, and already in the concentration camps, with the dignity and tolerance, they are waiting for their terrible fate! Neither the complaint nor the moans not escaped their lips, parched with tears and anguish lead. It’s over … they knew it, but until recently held proudly and triumphantly took his martyrdom!
Cast – great! Meryl Streep, James Woods and Michael Moriarty truly able to convey the character and morals of the people of that time. In general, the film is permeated with a sense of sorrow that a lump in your throat.
This picture does not leave anyone indifferent. It touches the soul and leaves a ragged heart trace. Rather the author really shows executions and brutal killings, which, of course, can not fail to make an impression on the viewer. Nazi officers composure and dignity humiliated and trampled in the mud people. Impressive!
The film really worth seeing. I advise everyone to watch!
