gave me a history lesson about WWII during Nazi occupation in
Three Jewish brothers found refuge in the
dense forests to escape certain death.
They created a refugee camp dedicated to
saving 1,200 Jewish people.
This fascinating true story of survival
is a remarkable footnote to the history of WWII that slipped
through the cracks.
But this movie brings back things we should
I found it emotional, exciting, well made,
and worth seeing.
It's Exodus redux as 3 Jewish brothers
avoid capture and become a warring band of guerrilla fighters
saving lives in the midst of WWII.
The conflict begins with moral indecision
as the vigilantes become both humanist
and murderers and must make the decision whether to flee or stay
This true story is a good film with plenty
of heart, good acting, and a haunting
(if not sappy) score.
But it's very, very average.
The movie Defiance is a WWII true
story of the Bielski family, about three Jewish brothers who
in 1941 take off into the woods of their native land to keep
from being captured and killed by the German Nazis.
In the forest, the brothers offer protective
cover to local Jews, and ended up saving more than 1,000 Jewish
lives through dangerous rescue raids and armed
shootouts with the enemy.
The lead actors are charismatic and committed
to this real Holocaust tale .
It's a gripping and heroic historical story.
