      I saw this movie a day ago because the title caught my eye when I was looking on the television guide for movies to watch. When I watched it though, I realised that the film was more than just a strange title, but it was a heartbreaking film which made me ponder on a lot of things. The main thing which struck me about the movie though was how small children especially can be pure of heart and naive, which causes them to see the good in people and situations, unlike most adults. It also shows how this innocence can slowly

      disappear as a child grows older (which was evident in how the boy’s older sister was acting, causing the individual to be more capable of bad thoughts, evil and destruction.

      This was evident in the plot where a little German boy living in World War II Germany sneaks out of his premises one day while playing and wanders through the woods to the back of a concentration camp which is fenced off by barbed wire. The boy who is eight, then spots another little boy who is about the same age as him on the other side. The little boy he sees ...


      • is thin, pale and frail looking with the hair on his head shaved off. In his innocence, the little German boy asks if he lives there and why everyone on the other side is wearing what he thinks are pyjamas. He sees the numbers on their pyjamas too and wonders if they are all playing a game and wants to join in too. The two boys soon become friends and playmates and the little German boy would even bring food to his little Jewish friend. One fateful day however, the little German boy finds that he can dig under the fence
        to be with his little Jewish friend; but on that same day, all the occupants of the camp are taken to be executed in a gas chamber. The little German boy’s family, who by that time realised he was missing and were searching furiously for him, soon found out what happened and realised just how evil what they were doing were. So in other words, it took one little boy’s innocence to teach an entire family the evils of war and how it can affect everyone.

        I recommend this movie to everyone who is looking for a good drama film to see.
