Movie Info

Veteran filmmaker Matt Cimber returned to the director's chair for the first time in twenty-two years with this dark tale set during World War II. Miriam Schafer (Ariana Savalas) was fourteen years old when war broke out in her native Lithuania; while Miriam came from a Jewish family, her blonde hair and soft features made it easy for the young woman to disguise her ethnic identity, and when a pogrom sweeps through the nation, she's taken in by a family who claims her as one of their own.

PG-13,

Drama

John F. Goff

The events recounted in the World War II drama Miriam are horrific, and the story behind it is moving. Unfortunately, the finished product feels like exploitation.

So bad it doesn't ever approach being good, doesn't even go from bad to good and back to bad again -- just bad bad bad, all the way through.

Such a touching story warrants retelling with better resources.

It's a forgotten piece of history worth recounting. One only regrets it wasn't better recounted than it is here.

A threadbare Holocaust drama that could be of some educational value in middle schools.

Miriam is a paean to Jewish oppression as if commissioned by the History Channel.
