This is a film that left me stunned, mainly the gripping climax. You are bound to think of Life is Beautiful.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is a film directed by Mark Herman based on the novel by Irish author John Boyne. The story happens in Wrodl War II Germany revolving around an SS officer's family of a wife, a girl and a boy. They come to live near an extermination camp but they think farmers live there. When smoke rises from a tall chimney they are told rubbish is being burnt there. The boy strikes a friendship with a Jew boy inside the camp. What happens later is to watched and I would be giving spoilers if I say what happens at the end. That would kill the interest of anyone who wants to watch it.
