SYNOPSIS/PLOT IN DARKNESS tells the true story of Leopold Soha who risks his own life to save a dozen people from certain death. Initially only interested in his own good, the thief and burglar hides Jewish refugees for 14 months in the sewers of the Nazi-occupied town of Lvov (former Poland).
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"This story of suffering and almost inadvertent humanitarianism is harrowing, engrossing, claustrophobic and sometimes literally hard to watch" (Todd McCarthy: Variety)
----------------------------------------
"An important film, related with deep conviction, and uncompromising in its understanding of the remarkable things members of the human race have done - to, for, and against each other - in the wilderness of war" (Rex Reed: The New York Observer)
----------------------------------------
"The film offers a warts-and-all portrait of victims and saviors, forgoing the heroism inherent in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List (...) In Darkness is an agonizing experience (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
