A Film Unfinished Reviews

  • Dec 04, 2017

    Netflix still has the dvd rentals and it (and the Romeo Public Library) have an incredible library of dvd. This heart breaking, disturbing movie is made from a Nazi film of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942 before it shuttered and the Poles & Germans Jews were sent to be killed. It was to be propaganda piece showing that life for the Jews in the Ghetto was just fine. It was never used or released and was found a few years ago and released with interviews of some survivors shown watching the movie. Very very tough going.

    An incredible film, this historical account of the Warsaw Jewish ghetto in 1942 really stark in contrast to many of the portrayals I've l seen before. Disturbing recollections of ghetto residents and one of the cameramen add context to the visuals. I appreciate the efforts of the resident diary keepers and historians whose words survived to dispel the attempted efforts of the nazi propaganda machine.

    The footages of unfinished Nazi propaganda made into a documentary about the horrifying life of Jews in Warsaw Ghetto.

    The Germans filmed this as propaganda against the Jews, but it has become a heartbreaking and haunting historical document in Holocaust history. I found it difficult to watch at times.

    A true narrative of a hidden Nazi propaganda film shot in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942. It depicts a major turning point as the Nazis were persecuting Jews and how they lived. The entire movie is this unseen footage that was recently unearthed. Survivors provide commentary over it explaining conditions. Also unearthed was an Outtake reel of cut footage showing how the Nazis had attempted to stage certain things for their propaganda film. This is a historically incredible film.

    A surreal and haunting documentary about an unfinished Nazi propaganda film that attempted to conceal the devastating horrors in the Warsaw ghetto by staging scenes of contentment specifically for the cameras. This is a devastating documentary about the subversively evil power of propaganda, and an absolute must-see picture.

    A Film Unfinished is a crucial film. It depicts a necessary awakening to the truths and lies of Warsaw and features some of the most haunting displays of human torture seen in cinema. The film also poses a serious in-depth study on the effects of fabrication versus realism in cinema and at what point one becomes the other.
