5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful movie - HIGHLY recommended., 4 Sept. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Uprising (Two Disc Set) [DVD] (DVD)
I had the good fortune to see this movie in New York last year and was blown away.
The movie tells the true and amazing story of the Jewish uprising in the Warsaw ghetto. Jon Avnets direction is maginificent, adopting a quasi-documentary style he truly captures the period and the feeling of being in moments as they happen.
The cast is stellar: Voight and Sutherland are their usual brilliant selves, Hank Azaria is a powerhouse of a leading man and David Schwimmer amazingly manages to make you forget 'Ross' ever existed with his wonderfully understated performance. Two of the lesser know leads really demand attention, Stephen Moyer (Quills) and Andy Nyman (Dead Babies) both deliver incredible performances in what are almost the best characters in the movie - I guarentee they are both names we will hear a lot more of.
The women don't fare quite as well, apart from leelee Sobieski who delivers the best performance of her career to date.
It's rare to see a movie that both moves and educates but this for me did exactly that. Without ever once feeling preached to I left the cinema profoundly moved and yet uplifted. Wonderful.
