Movie Info

Saviors in the Night (Unter Bauern) is based on the memories of Marga Spiegel. In her narrative, published in 1965, she describes how courageous farmers in southern Münsterland hid her, her husband Siegfried {named Menne} and their little daughter Karin from 1943 until 1945, thus saving them from deportation to the extermination camps in the East. The film tells this story of survival with a sense for the absurd in daily life and not without the typical Westphalian humor. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Saviors in the Night

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

This third feature by Dutch helmer-producer Ludi Boeken benefits from his docu background in its realistic, no-frills style and refreshingly unsentimental treatment of the subject.

Top Critic

"Saviors'' is lifted up and made special by the complexities and social crosscurrents of the people it depicts.

Top Critic

It's all fairly by the numbers, but in Boeken's presentation, the film isn't without its moments of narrative power.

Slant Magazine

Suspenseful, heartbreaking, and uplifting, Saviors is a worthy entry in the Holocaust genre.
