One might think that after more than 70 years it would be difficult to find a new story to tell about World War II. Polish director Agnieszka Holland has chosen a familiar story, the liquidation of Jews living in the ghettos of Poland, to recount the little-known and extraordinary tale of ghetto-dwellers who tried to escape the Nazis by living and hiding in the sewers of the city of Lwów. In Darkness received an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and will not soon be forgotten by anyone who views it.

Watched the Blu-ray the other night and like Schindler's List a very powerful movie based on true events. These movies, Anne Frank, The Pianist, Counterfeiters, Defiance, etc., are engrossing because you know they are based on true events. They make you aware how deeply involved the local people were in helping the Nazi's. Most important they also show how many people put their lives at risk with the chances they took in helping those the Nazi's wanted to exterminate. WW II unlike any other war resulted in approximately 85% casualties to the civilian population. Because this movie plays of the emotion of the characters it is best watched in it's native language with subtitles. I know many hate subtitles but it would be a tragedy watching Bruno Ganz's performance in Downfall dubbed. In Darkness is highly recommended very entertaining.
