Rated R · 145 minutes · 2012
Umpteenth Holocaust film sends several families of determined yet frightened Polish Jews into the sewers of Lvov, where they hide for more than a year during WWII, evading the German Nazi death camps. The wrinkle in this familiar-sounding tale – based on a true story – is the character of Leopold Socha (well played by actor Robert Wieckiewicz), a none-too-honest Catholic sewer worker who at first takes advantage of the darkness dwellers, then gradually transforms himself into a Righteous Gentile. Any similarities between Socha’s choice and the good deeds in Schindler’s List may or may not be incidental, but even for diehard Holocaust fans the turf is getting to be a bit worn. For her part, Polish-French director Agnieszka Holland handles the material – an adaptation of Robert Marshall’s book by screenwriter David F. Shamoon – honestly. But enough is too much. (145 min.)
