This is a fabulous movie that any generation can learn from and be moved by re the Nazis horrible treatment of Jews before and during World War II. I cry my eyes out every time I watch it. I've watched it on satellite TV several times and recorded it, but I like it so much I wanted my own permanent DVD. The background music and photography are beautiful. Martin Landau is exceptional in his role, and the entire cast does a fabulous job. His character and his wife have no children of their own but give up all their millions in assets (money, artwork, homes, etc.) to save other members of their family so they can all get out alive from Germany. The scene where Mr. & Mrs. Krauzenberg have to entertain Himmler in their last night in their home is particularly gut wrenching. I strongly believe young people in particular of all nations should watch this movie and learn something about how people were killed and tortured because of their religion. If you want to watch a movie that really...
This movie was so subtly captivating in the beginning that without realizing it by the end when the big climax is happening, you are so entrenched in the lives and well being of these characters that you feel as though your are running for your own life. For one of the only times in my life that I can remember, I was actually yelling out loud at the characters to run! I watch a lot of WWII era films, and this was by far one of my favorites. It ranks up there with some of the other greats like Glorious 39, Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and The Book Thief. This movie is so good that if I watched it again, I would still be just as wound up and worried at the end part even though I know how things end up, because this movie is just that good.
This is an absolutely wonderful movie that shows how cruel the Nazi's were and yet how the Jewish people tried to overcome anything possible to save friends and family. Don't read too much into reviews from people who write long, drawn-out reviews using words they had to look up in a Thesaurus. They think they are professional critics and try to pick apart every part of the movie. Just watch it for yourself and enjoy. Martin Landau is fabulous in this movie.
