What do you do when you lose everything? Fight back. It is the 1940s, and the world is at war. Elek is a young Jewish man in Hungary. When the Nazis take his entire family he and a small group of friends set out to rescue as many of their people from the enemy as they can, by pretending to be the enemy. They do this with the assistance of some Nazi uniforms they obtain.
This is one of the most mesmerizing movies I have ever experienced. They did not have the backing of any major studios in making this film, but the quality did not suffer. This is an amazing story, based upon real events, and told beautifully.
It had a limited distribution in theaters, the only way it was hurt by lack of a major studio presence. I was fortunate to see it in a theater, and have anxiously awaited its release on DVD. When I heard it had been, I promptly ordered my own copy. This film will haunt me forever.
