Germany released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), German ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Biographies, Interactive Menu, Photo Gallery, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Siblings attempting to flee religious persecution in Europe near the close of the 15th century find themselves torn apart by greed and jealousy in this historical drama. Isabel (Katherine Borowitz), Clara (Tara Fitzgerald), and Victoria (Hannah Taylor-Gordon) are three sisters from a family of Portuguese Jews who have been forced to fend for themselves after their wealthy parents died while trying to escape the wrath of the Spanish Inquisition. Isabel has appointed herself head of the household, acting as teenaged Victoria's guardian and giving Clara little say in the family's affairs. The sisters have relocated to Italy while trying to arrange a passage to Istanbul, where greater tolerance is shown to Jews; in Venice, they are allowed to live outside the city's dilapidated Jewish ghetto only as long at they attend Catholic services on a regular basis. Clara makes the acquaintance of Paolo (John Turturro), a charming British expatriate, and is quite taken with him until he proposes a marriage between his son and Victoria, leaving her to wonder if he wants to get his hands on the family fortune. Isabel, meanwhile, puts her siblings in jeopardy by attempting to steal the trade secrets of a leading Venetian glass blower and sell them to a group of Turks, a risky matter that could literally cost Isabel her life. ...Secret Passage

SECRET PASSAGE, a Jewish family's exodus after expulsion from Spain 11 Dec. 2010
By Lloyd Levi - Published on
Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a copy of this movie for several years after having seen it at a private screening at the Sephardic Center on 16th Street in Manhattan. No luck anywhere until I found this German copy. Fortunately, I have an "all zone" Pioneer DVD player. Why hasn't a US copy of this film been made available? It is an incredibly good and accurate portrayal of the expulsion of a Jewish family from late 15th or early 16th century Spain by Spanish Inquisitors and their attempt to arrive in tolerant Turkey via Antwerp and Venice. Most of the action takes place in Venice as the family fails to inform the authorities that they are Jewish and prefers to continue the ruse of being Catholic, thereby avoiding Venice's Ghetto and alienating the local Jewish population. See the movie. Its fabulous.
