| Important chance to learn another aspect of WWII
I have just seen this as part of the Boston Jewish Film Festival.A very moving piece of work. It immerses the viewer in a very realistic depiction of the experiences of being a previously sheltered/hidden Jewish kid in France or a Jewish kid/concentration camp survivor. The kids in the former group are seen, as would be predictable, as a sunnier, hopeful, bonded group.In their 'safe house' château outside Paris, they have the life of a big extended family, with belief that their parents will return. But eventually, the liberation of Buchenwald and Auschwitz becomes front page news and the film sequence of the kids as they read the newspaper coverage- is very very moving. Soon after, a large group of kids- young to teens- from those same camps, arrives at the château, and the somber and savage ways of this group- greatly affects the dynamics of the previously peaceful life there. All of the acting is pitch perfect and I found the screenplay and editing to be very well done. This experience has greatly added to my understanding of yet another aspect of this world changing horror that was WWII.
