This is quite a good film, it isn't oscar worthy as Schindler's List is but close. The story is based on real events but after watching it I sort feel like the plot was there but waste of time considering the Sonderkomaders ended up being shot at the end for their troubles. It shows a brutal side of these 'Kapos' as they're called removing the dead bodies from the gas chambers in Auswitzch camp where you see the Jews arriving and being led to the 'showers' with some band playing music. The cast is good Harvey Keitel is convincing as an evil Nazi officer with an odd accent and a young David Arquette is also seen as one of the Kapos who helps rescue a young girl who survived the gas chambers and tries to keep her alive. Spot actress Mira Sorvino as a female jewish prisoner who pays dearly for her life for hiding parts for the sabotage plan. It's a film where you can't sometimes hear what the actors are actually saying but you soon get to understand what it is all about as the first time I saw it I didn't see the point in it. A horrible time for the Jewish people being led to their deaths is something we should not forget.
