PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, History
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.
Dr. Janusz Korczak:
But what of the children, Dr. Zabinski? My heart is no different than yours, I don't believe. I should not be here. They should not be here. You should not be here.
When Antonina talks to Urszula about the rabbit, she refers to the animal as female. Later, Urszula refers to it as male and has given it a male name. Both can't be true, and presumably Antonina, being familiar with animals, is right and Urszula is wrong.
