    This is one of the great war epics I've ever seen. It's one of the few movies to show WWII in a respectable, nonromantic, or exploitative way. We follow the real story of Solomon Perel who as a Jewish teenager during WWII pretended to be German and lived as a Nazi during the war.

I'm so happy to have watched this and am excited to show others.
