My wife and I watched this in the theater a number of years ago. Needless to say it was a shocking movie. Everybody should watch this to make sure the root causes of this are never repeated. By root causes I mean: overbearing BIG government that wants to run everybody's life and people letting them do it. I just had to comment when I saw this go up on the site.

One of those movies you start with very little expectations, yet stuns you with the message. Anything about the concentration camps is very depressing, but this one truly demonstrates how souless the whole piece of history was than.

Neither true to life nor particularly believable.

Truly the most horrifying film with a Holocaust theme that you will ever see. There are many brilliant films about this tragedy (for example, The Pianist) but this film is exceptional. It is so perfectly acted and directed, and the music is well done. It builds to a terrifying conclusion. You will never forget this film.

this book is very sad when I read this book I though I was actually in it made tears come to my eyes and when I watched the movie I cried thru most of it I think the holacost was a horrible time to live in and I fell bad for all who did live in that time period

Contrary to the description at the back of the DVD case, I didn't find this movie to be inspiring and heartwarming given the final outcome of the main characters. However, this was still nice to watch and I would recommend it.

An excellent film that gave the viewer a chance to experience two sides of a story. I liked the chance to get to know Bruno and his mother so that I could understand their questions and understanding. Informative, engaging but very very sad. Since it's a JDVD I thought it would be good for my children, but as we were watching it I realized that the content was probably too mature for my 8 year old. My 9 & 12 year olds were familiar with the background of the concentration camps from school. They liked it.
