Good (but not great) film. Ben Mendelsohn is solid as usual. Cool soundtrack, if you like the blues that is.
I was positively surprised, since I have noticed this for years, seen it got good ratings and so on, but didn't bother watch it as I thought it was too sentimental, and just an other KZ-movie.
Lacking a movie last night Net Flix came up with this for me. It has it's shortcomings, but is a good movie that rises interesting and actual questions in an appealing way; how far are you willing to go to survive? The movie is rather pessimistic and sees us as opportunists: both nazis and prisoners - but to a very high price. It's open ended; but suggests we might be better off to die for freedom, than just surviving to a life not worth living.
Spy Hard - Rick Friedberg (1996)
20 Years haven't added anything to this movie. Funny in parts, but instead of Spy Hard it should be named Try Hard (and end up cheesy). I remembered it as funnier, but I might mix it with som of the other spy movies that the very funny Leslie Nielsen appears in. It's so many years ago.
