"A timeless story of innocence lost and humanity found."
The mystery why the title wears Pyjamas maybe quite predictable yet, it doesn’t change the fact that this movie lands to my list of movies that have a huge impact on me (and that doesn’t just mean that I cried over this film).
Originally a novel by John Boyne and directed by Mark Herman, the story is set during World War II in Germany. And yes, this is a Nazi-related movie that dauntlessly presented the conflict of interests and the involvement of innocence. In spite of the controlled punches of this film, the horrifying truth of the holocaust during this era can’t be concealed.
The tragedy is a heavy burden but taking your eyes off the film (if you choose to watch this) is surely a mistake.
And by the way, kudos to late Miramax for bringing one of the best movies of the decade.
