Reviews for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Review - Boy in the Striped Pajamas, The
Wow. It's hard to know what to think about this movie. The innocence and tragedy of Bruno, the helplessness of Schmuel and the willing blindness of the German people are all played out to full effect. While I couldn't help thinking that the friendship between a German boy and a camp prisoner was unlikely to have happened for several reasons, it works in the context of this story. I expected the movie to end with Bruno realizing what was about to happen to his friend and screaming in horror, but I never expected Bruno to end up in the champer himself. Wow.
