“The writing and its attendant characterizations have an undeniable integrity, the particular historical detail offered by the story is not common in films about this era, and the lead performers are moving.” (New York Times)
“One of the best movies about the Holocaust told from a child’s point of view.” (Jerusalem Post)
An extraordinary, heartwarming adaptation of Joshe Joffo’s memoir that tells the true story of two young, mischievous, smart, and courageous Jewish brothers who must escape the Nazis on their own after Paris is occupied in 1942. Innocent and almost agonizingly vulnerable, 10-year-old Joseph and 12-year-old Maurice must make their way to the Free Zone, where they hope to reunite with their parents. Along their path, they meet kind (and not-so-kind) strangers, but more than anything, it’s the brothers’ bond that gets them through.
