Movie Info

Ukraine, 1941: Der junge, hochbegabte Violinist Abrascha (Elin Kolev) und die nicht minder begabte Pianistin Larissa (Imogen Burrell) werden als Wunderkinder der klassischen Musik gefeiert. Sie spielen in den großen Konzertsälen Russlands - vor der Parteielite und sogar vor Stalin. Hanna (Mathilda Adamik), Tochter des deutschen Brauers Max Reich (Kai Wiesinger) sowie seiner Frau Helga (Catherine Flemming), ist selbst eine talentierte Geigerin und wünscht sich nichts sehnlicher, als Unterricht mit den russischen Wunderkindern zu bekommen. Larissa und Abrascha reagieren verhalten. Erst als ihre Lehrerin Irina Salmonova (Gudrun Landgrebe) einwilligt, auch Hanna zu unterrichten, entwickelt sich zwischen den Kindern eine innige Freundschaft. Aber bald wird sie auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Nach dem Angriff der Deutschen auf Russland müssen sich die Reichs verstecken. Und die jüdischen Familien von Larissa und Abrascha helfen ihnen.

  • Regardless of your age, you need to pay attention to the characters during the scene setting of this chilling Holocaust story.

  • Seeing the moral terror of war from the perspective of children has rarely been done as well as it is in Marcus Rosenmuller's thoughtful, moving wartime drama.

  • It never quite hits the emotional heights it sets out to, but remains a unique and moving take on an often-explored period of history.

  • Although there are a few stilted scenes and some clunky dialogue (as subtitled) the film stands up well as a wartime drama with familiar elements - but also with a slightly different approach

  • Musically-gifted children are at the heart of moving Holocaust drama.
