Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky (Sony Pictures Classics, 2007)

Holocaust films often present concentration camp inmates as if they were only victims, not complex characters with their own unique stories and choices. But Stefan Ruzowitzky's riveting tale about two very different prisoners struggling to find their own answer to an impossible moral dilemma presents us with protagonists who cannot be reduced to caricatures.
