A very different kind of a thriller.
A man beats death into submission in it’s own backyard. What a great spectacle of sheer strength, immense courage and Awareness in every step of the way.
Riveting premise… excellent drama…
A Jewish prisoner, at the height of WWII, pretends to be Persian in order to teach the camp commandant the language he dreams of learning. His life depends on inventing, and remembering, the words to his farcical Farsi. This riveting drama is superbly acted by the two central leads, and wonderfully directed by Vadim Perelman.
