PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, War
When an open-minded Jewish librarian and his son become victims of the Holocaust, he uses a perfect mixture of will, humor, and imagination to protect his son from the dangers around their camp.
Before they go to sleep Guido and Ferruccio have a few jokes about the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, a favorite writer of Adolf Hitler.
This is a simple story... but not an easy one to tell.
When Dora kisses Guido under the table, her head is tilted to the right then is tilted to the left in the next shot.
