In Darkness (2011)

Directed by: Agnieszka Holland
Country: Poland

Plot: A dramatization of one man's rescue of Jewish refugees in the Nazi-occupied Polish city of Lvov.
Quick comment: Based upon a true story, polish director Agnieszka Holland returns to the World War II disclosures, after “Europa Europa” has achieved wide notoriety when it was released in 1990. Perhaps the movie could have been shortened out of its 145 min., but that fact didn't remove its inspiration. Besides the sharp cinematography, I was touched with one of the most joyful finales seen in a war movie.
Relevant awards: Audience award (St. Louis)
