2008 M Contains violence and offensive language.

A different kind of World War II movie, one that looks at the Holocaust from a unique angle--telling the true story of a group of Jews in Eastern Europe who fought back. Three Jewish brothers escape from Nazi-occupied Poland into the Belarussian forest, where they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavour to build a village in order to protect themselves and others in danger.

Loved this one. Never tacky or trite and with a seesaw of feelings and emotions. Based on a true story and I finished the movie knowing the Brothers were real heroes.

worst movie since a long time! unrealistic, slow it is almost like you are watching a play.

Great story line, based on real characters and stories. Although the story line itself was engaging, this movie lacked action.

I enjoyed this movie very much, it was very moving and told of a subject not widely known.

Not too bad, though the dialogue stumbles throughout, stating the obvious at times. The story itself is a tribute to the human spirit and I don't think it needs the tongue-poking messages at the end.

Fantastic. Brilliantly acted - wonderful screenplay - amazing storyline. Very very worthy watch. Will keep you interested throughout.

Good story and well-done film about it. So good to see another side to the usual ones shown about the Jews in WW2.
