“Had potential to be such a good film, but is drastically let down by the paw acting (see what I did there) The holocaust was a truly terrible thing and any film that depicts it should be taken seriously. I found myself wanting to laugh out loud in places and that is wrong on every level. I might add laughing at the acting and not the terrible events of the holocaust. If you want to watch a moving well acted depiction of the holocaust, watch the pianist and not this drivel.”
