The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

After the repeated request from a friend I finally watched this movie. It was interesting to see from a eight year old's pov. Bruno, son of a SS soldier in Hitler's army befriends Shmuel, a boy on the other side of a fence who wears striped pjs. It is a reminder of how pure we can be when we are little. Things are simple when we don't know hate and fear. The characters are well developed and I found myself very involved. This movie tugged on my heart. Deep and significant to what was going on during Nazi Germany. I recommend this film with ****


  1. Even just the name of this movie gives me the chills. Looks like I'm gonna have to rent it soon!

  2. agreed....a must watch....but have some kleenex ready!
