An Hungarian youth comes of age at Buchenwald during World War II. György Köves is 14, the son of a merchant who's sent to a forced labor camp. After his father's departure, György gets a job at a brickyard; his bus is stopped and its Jewish occupants sent to camps. There, György find camaraderie, suffering, cruelty, illness, and death. He hears advice on preserving one's dignity and self-esteem. He discovers hatred. If he does survive and returns to Budapest, what will he find? What is natural; what is it to be a Jew? Sepia, black and white, and color alternate to shade the mood.

(fr) wrote: I have no idea what this film was trying to be. The first hour offers genuinely great world-building [apart from the jarring juxtaposition of a white-out cast and a Latin American setting], and a truly gripping and unsettling allegory of military life and the horrors of war. The second hour does a complete about-face and turns the film into a gratuitous, glorifying war flick; a "satire of fascism" it could be argued, perhaps, but if this was Verhoeven's purpose he certainly doesn't make it clear enough, and can claim only a confusing, schizophrenic work. It's unfortunate that Netflix does not show ratings from RT or IMDB, as I frequently find myself hitting not completely terrible films, but really odd cases like this.Perhaps the most useful thing I got out of watching this film was learning that it is loosely based on a novel by Robert Heinlein, and that Robert Heinlein also wrote Stranger In a Strange Land and is a bizarre pro-war fascist.
