This story makes me think seriously again of an expedition to the Promised Land and enjoying immersion at a specially chosen kibbutz. Such an intense movie based on the crazy but true story of a brave and resourceful Jewish lad, Solomon, who manages to elude Nazi capture and atrocities by masquerading as an ethnic German living outside Germany. It reminds me of the Biblical story of Joseph because of how Solomon gains so much favor with the Nazis to the point that he gets enrolled in an elite Hitler Youth School in the middle of Nazi Germany (the irony). Ironically, the alias he uses is the name Josef. There's a classic scene in the movie where a Nazi "expert" in Jewish detection is teaching the Nazi youth how to pick out a Jew based on physical traits. The "expert" selects Solomon/Josef as his subject for a demonstration, and after some measurements and observations, pronounces that Solomon/Josef is of "pure Aryan stock" :P Julie Delpy was very impressive playing a female Hitler Youth.
