"Why did you choose this product?"
Wonderful but sad movie. I watched it with teens and it put things in perspective for them as to the mistreatment of Jewish people during WW2. I would highly recommend it as part of a teen's education. It shows living conditions during war time, the education of the priviledged, the cruelty of kids between themselves, friendship, the good and the bad on the French as well as on the German side.The only problem I had, is that in several places the translation is not accurate and that I did not care for the word choices that were used....

I am a student in French II. My teacher was showing this movie to the students in the higher french classes, she recommended the movie and told us that this movie was a fantastic one. I had seen the movie on HBO once and watched half of it, thats all i had to see to realize just how amazing this movie is. I bought the movie from overstock and watched the whole thing. The movie is very educational and touching in many ways. I definetly recommend this movie to anybody who has any interest in the war or who takes any french class.Read More
