well told

Because this is based on true events it would have been tempting to over-emphasise just one aspect of this remarkable story. Instead the story reveals several remarkable events that make up the total and each part is shown well. The trailers possibly lead viewers to expect the whole story to unfold in the concentration camp but there is more to the events. Unfortunately this does mean that the makers could get it wrong and they possibly focused too much on the initial survival rather than the captor/captive interaction. Nevertheless you should leave feeling uplifted and inspired and amazed that this really happened.
