Movie Info

A breathtaking drama of young lovers running away from the hell of Auschwitz where they live in a special commando Kanada. Historical drama / thriller - resemblance to the masterpiece Papillon (1973, dir. J. Schaffner) Arnot Lustig is one of the world's most renowned literary authors of our times. Lusting's novel Colette draws on his personal Nazi Concentration Camp experience and his own recollection of several escape attempts from the hell of the Auschwitz. The Pulitzer Prize nominated author, in cooperation with a writer/director Milan Cieslar, tells - in pure language of film - a tale, of the power of love under extreme life circumstances. It is a story of a man and his vigorous determination to escape from a hopeless life condition and his courage to face death.(c) Happy Celluloid

This paltry Czech drama based on his semiautobiographical book The Girl from Antwerp is among the worst films about the subject that I've come across.
