The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - GREAT MOVIE

  I bumped into this movie accidentally (even though it's from 2008), so I didn't have much expectations, but WOW! This movie is by far one of the most powerful movies I have ever seen. This movie has an ending, possibly, one of the most outstanding, frightening and mind blowing, ever recorded on film. The whole point of 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' is to tell a story about the Holocaust through the eyes of a child. A young child would not have an concept of prejudicing someone and can question the groundless basis for these views. They really resemble our own thoughts when they think people can't possibly harm other people like that. They have unlimited faith in the grown ups who are supposed to keep them safe, and even if bad things happen to them, they think it just belongs that way. A beautiful and poignant film about innocence, loyalty and friendship, set within the sheer horror of the Holocaust. It is definitely a film worth seeing!
