Alone in Berlin features Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson star as a working class couple whose son is killed fighting Hitler’s wars. They pour their rage and grief into postcards emblazoned with anti-Nazi slogans. This is a “deeply moving film and a worthy monument to a pair of decidedly unlikely war heroes” (Daily Mail). The Zookeeper’s Wife tells how a zoo becomes a sanctuary during World War Two. After the Warsaw Zoo was destroyed during the early days of the war, the staff began using the empty cages as hiding places for Jews fleeing the ghetto. Although “it doesn’t haunt you like Schindler’s List, director Niki Caro recreates the final years of the war on the European front with a convincing accuracy that is deeply touching” (New York Observer). In Land of Mine, is a dram based on German POWs who were forced to clear minefields along the Danish coast. This is “a little-known story, powerfully told.”
