Movie Haiku:If you liked THE BOY IN THE STRIPPED PAJAMAS, then see this too, but if not, then stay away. Once again people with British accents play "Good Germans" who care for piteous but luminous Jews even as they suffer under wartime privations & Allied bombs. Jan could hear women sniffling all around her but sat like a stone counting the minutes until release. NOT YET SEEN BY RICH.
