Walking With The Enemy Reviews
This is the story of the lesser know Pinchas Rosenbaum who helped save hundreds of Jews from the Nazi occupation of Hungary in 1944. Pinchas was actually an assistant to the much larger program led by Carl Lutz who was the Swedish consul who saved thousands of Jews through issuance of citizenship papers and refuge in the Glass House. This was an entertaining movie but a little stilted and formulaic with mean, heartless Nazis and gentle Jews who felt everything would work out. Certainly no Schindlers list but worth your two hours.
AS I MISSED THE SHOWINGS AT THE CINEMA, IM SO GUTTED PLEASE RELEASE THIS SOON
MANY THANKS FROM A FRUSTRATED VIEWER
There are some pluses. The cinematography is very good. The story is good. Most of the actors are pretty good. Ben Kingsley is excellent. The various evil Nazi and right wing Hungarian thugs are very convincing.
But, the whole film had an unreal, amateurish feel to it.
It was a modestly OK trip to the flics.
