| A family view of the effects of Naziism on two girls.
Two school girls, one Jewish and one from a family who are strong Nazi supporters are close friends in Vienna in 1938. Their relationship holds fast even as the persecution of Jews grows. Some Jews are aware of the encroaching danger but others refuse to see it and many lose their last opportunity to escape it. The film gets a little maudlin at times: the girls' dialogue seems too adult and idealistic. However the story does clearly depict the insidious manner in which Naziism divided families, friends and communities and it does so in a manner suitable for people from ages 7 to adult. I give it 7/10 (enjoyable enough for one viewing).
