Johann Moritz(Anthony Quinn) lives in a small village in Romania with his loving wife. Local police sergeant has Moritz sent to a work camp as a Jew, so he can try and sleep with his wife. After a couple of years he escapes with a group of Jews to Hungry. They go on to America, but he has to stay because he’s not Jewish. Then he arrested and sent to a German work camp, in the camp he is deemed part of the Aryan race and enlisted as an Waffen SS soldier. After helping the prisoners escape, he is placed in an America prison camp and prosecuted as a war criminal.

Moritz has nothing but trouble in his life, yet he always seems to find the bright side. He’s simple yet, he always finds a way to cope with all his misfortune. The movie started a little slow, but soon had me fully invested. No warn fuzzy here, just man mistreating man.

Based on true events, worth a watch———-07/10
