I give this movie 4 Stars

Story line:  Set during World War II, a story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences.

This movie was very interesting to me. On the one hand I really liked it although it was sad, and on the other I found myself angry that this sort of thing used to happen. It makes me furious to come to the realization that this sort of thing used to happen and was thought to be normal.

This movie although its message very strong, fell a little short when it came to other things. I found the movie very slow, although you couldn’t get rid of any parts because everything said needed to be there. I just felt bored, until the end.

*Spoiler Alert*

I hated the ending, how he ended up dyeing. It was just not fair, I was hoping that his father was going to get to him in time, but I knew that he wouldn’t. It is a very tragic tale, and I more than likely will not watch it again just for that fact. It is too sad and to maddening, it is just too hard to deal with the fact that things like that happened.

Don’t forget to smile!


  1. Not sure I could watch it. I prefer movies that make me laugh! Life has enough ups and downs as it is.

  2. I saw this movie. History... either good or bad... is so fascinating to me and I can't help but watch it. This movie was so so sad, but it was greatly portrayed for it's time. A good learning movie, but like you said I will probably not watch it again either.
