This review is from: The Last Butterfly [1991] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
The year is 1944. The French Mime Antoine Moreau is wrongly accused of beeing involved with the Resistance. The Nazis offer him to save his life if he agrees to perform for Jewish children in a Ghetto in Czecheslovakia, so that they can pretend to a Delegation of the Red Cross that they would treat the Jews humane. On arrival Antoine soon finds out that the Nazis plan to send all the Ghetto Inhabitants to the Gas Chambers of Auschwitz once the Red Cross Delegation has left! He eventually decides to perform after all, but the performance is not quite what the Nazis had in mind! The end of the film is sheer overwhelming! An absolute must see!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars as well as joy and comradeship, 6 Aug 2014

This review is from: The Last Butterfly [1991] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
A superb movie giving an insight into the lives, fears, as well as joy and comradeship, of a troubled time during the war seen through the eyes of Germans and Jews alike, mainly the children. Tom Courtney, as the German mime, is truly amazing in the role, and his relationship with the Jewish children is, at times, likely to have you reaching for the tissues. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shocking, Disturbing, Coming Of Age Movie, 12 April 2014
This review is from: The Last Butterfly [1991] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
It is the story about a man who is in charge of a theatre group of Jews during World War II in Nazi Germany, who also has a little girl (played by Linda Jablonska) who develops a liking to the man.
The movie is filled with the shocking drama experienced by Jews during World War II as well as nude scenes. I found out about the movie by reading the Amazon.com Kindle book titled THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO GIRLS IN COMING OF AGE MOVIES 2013. It is filled with similar movies, many of which I'd not known as being in the Coming of Age genre.
