Most Holocaust-themed movies focus either on survivors (Sophie's Choice, The Pawnbroker) who struggle to deal with their past ordeal in flashbacks, or on those who tried something heroic or special (Schindler's List, The Great Escape). But this one, Forced March, is one of the few to speak for the victims... for those who tried to survive but couldn't... by focusing on the true story of Miklos Radnoti, Hungary's greatest poet, who was shot into a mass grave on a forced march but left a notebook of his harrowing poems written in 'real time' as he suffered through his last months. And by structuring the story through the eyes of a contemporary actor who thinks he's going to portray a hero, but instead finds the reality of a victim, the movie at once shows the difficulty in getting close enough to the horrors of that reality, and also makes the dilemma relevant for current & future generations... how would you have acted? Because, for most of us, what we see in movies can become the truth.
