This movie is decent, but nothing too special. Early on, it has a "wasn't World War II in Germany _quaint_ and pretty" feel to it. The acting is fine, especially Geoffrey Rush.
Didn't like the voice-over narration at all.
No reason to rush out and see this movie, in my opinion. Catching it sometime on DVD would be my recommendation.

This is a wonderful movie and the performances are very memorable. John Williams' score is moving and supports the movies in a beautifully subtle way. The images and characters stayed with me for a long time. Fine for young teenagers and above but they should have knowledge of the holocaust however this is a good film to introduce them to this horrible page in human history. Definitely recommend this film!

Amazing movie with amazing acting. Very heart warming. You actually feel like you are there in the 1940's Germany. Just as she was in the movie "War Horse" Sophie Nelisse will take your heart, she is an incredible actress. This movie will make you laugh as well make your eyes water up. Great story. It ends well, not sad
