SYNOPSIS/PLOT This work was set in Berlin, 1942. When the young eight-year-old Bruno (Asa Butterfield) returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But, Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than what meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"See the Holocaust trivialized, glossed over, kitsched up, commercially exploited and hijacked for a tragedy about a Nazi family. Better yet and in all sincerity: don’t." (Manohla Dargis: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"The power of this Holocaust tale sneaks up and floors you. (...) the power of the story and the performances —young Butterfield amazes — is indisputable. (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
