The Zookeeper's Wife tells the account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the German invasion.
Director Niki Caro stated that her first film cut was nearly three and a half hours long, utilizing the entire screenplay. The final film was required to be two hours in length, and so an hour and a half was cut from the film in the editing room.
You can never tell who your enemies are, or who to trust. Maybe that's why I love animals so much. You look in their eyes, and you know exactly what's in their hearts. They're not like people.
Several scenes inside the Warsaw zoo show palm trees. At 52 degrees plus north latitude (a bit farther north than Calgary Alberta Canada) Warsaw Poland is way too far north to have palm trees. Therefore the zoo scenes were obviously shot at a more southerly location.
