Inspired by a true story, this film follows a brave young man (Jonas Armstrong) who poses as a Nazi officer to save other Jews in Budapest. This well-constructed (if not somewhat formulaic) film depicts German cruelty and the bravery of those who stood up to them. It’s attractively shot, well acted and directed with passion. Although the drama sometimes gets a bit heavy-handed, it remains an absorbing film  with a charismatic leading man. My minor beefs: everyone speaks with accents (in their own language!) and Armstrong always has a 5 o’clock shadow (which the Nazis would never tolerate). (Criterion Ciinema only)
