Review

  • Well acted, edited, cast, and scripted. Based on a real life person, a Greek boxer who fought in the Olympics.

    Since it portrays the Holocoust so well, this is the sort of film that all high school students should see.

    The only problem that I have with this film is that it was too heavy for me. I was more atuned to a light romance or action-comedy. Too much seriousness, of horrible inhumanity, of brutal mass killings... it makes me weary.

    By contrast, the cleverness of the more recent film "Life is Beautiful" aka "La Vita è bella" is that it adds humour, vitality and hope to the extreme dire situation of the Holocoust.

    Nevertheless, 'Triumph' is a quality film.
