Posted by DB Product Review on Friday, August 1, 2014 Under: Movies & TV

"In Darkness" is a 2011 Polish film designated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Oscars. It recounts the genuine story of a sewer controller in Nazi involved Lvov (then Poland, now The Ukraine) who consents to sanctuary a gathering of Jews getting away from the passing squads goal on eradicating them. The film is focused around the 1990 book "In the Sewers of Lvov" by Robert Marshall. 

Lvov was a flourishing city preceding the war, and at the begin of the war it was affixed by the Soviet Union and Jews from German involved Poland fled to the city. The Lvov Ghetto turned into one of the biggest Jewish ghettos in Nazi possessed Poland with more than 200,000 individuals. Supported by the Ukrainian civilian army, the Nazis quickened liquidation in 1943 when the story starts. At last short of what 1,000 individuals survived. 

FWIW - Although not a piece of this film, its qualified to note that Simon Wiesenthal (1908-2005) was one of the survivors. Wiesenthal picked up global distinction after the war as a standout amongst the best Nazi seekers. 

"In Darkness" is reminiscent of "Kanal", a 1956 Polish film about the Warsaw Uprising - a 2 month battle by the Polish safety development to free Warsaw from Nazi occupation while the Russians were propelling That film happens in September 1944 and takes after an unit of 43 safety contenders as they go through the city's sewer framework to escape a Nazi hostile. 

"Kanal" was the second of 3 movies by Andrzej Wajda (1926) about this period, a period in which he himself was a safety contender. Wajda (1926) has 4 Oscar assignments for Best Foreign film - "The Promised Land" (1975), "The Maids of Weilko" (1979), "Man of Iron" (1981), and "Katyri" (2007) and won a BAFTA for "Danton" (1982). He won the Palme d'or at Cannes for "Kanal", "Man of Marble" (1977), "Bez znieczulenia" (1978) and "Man of Iron" (1981). 

The chief of this film, Agnieszka Holland (1948) worked with Wajda ahead of schedule in her vocation as a scholar and served as an aide on the basically acclaimed "Danton" (1982). In this film she steers with such aptitude that she makes you feel the sadness and fear which the escapees must have felt. Holland was named for an Oscar and a BAFTA for her work on "Europa" (1990) and for an Emmy for "Treme" (2010). 

The film is constant in its tribute to the survival intuition, both as for the criminals living in the sewers for a year, and the Polish specialist and his family who keep them alive at the danger of their own lives. 

The NY Times called the film "dramatic, sickening and now and again seriously moving" and said "the visual differentiation between the planets above and subterranean is taken care of delightfully and suggestively." Rex Reed in "The Observer" called it "flawlessly taped, delicately acted and expertly composed" and said "It's frightening, now and then hard to watch and wrenchingly moving to the point of tears. It is likewise splendid. Don't miss it." 

Primary concern - an influential film.
