‘Don’t tell your story to anyone. Nobody will believe you.’ Issak tells Solly as he emerges from an incredible, but true, WW2 experience, that tested the core of his identity. Holland reveals the potential of humanity behind authority and the ambiguity of labels, on Solly’s painful journey. Allan Starski’s design (foreshadowing Schindler’s List) and compelling performances from the cast make this an award-winner that still resonates.
With and introduced by director Agnieszka Holland.
