Dividing Bar

Remarkable film from Wanda Jakubowska, who was imprisoned in Auschwitz for her work in the Polish resistance and in 1947 made The Last Stage, a film based on her experiences in Auschwitz, shot partly on location and including former Auschwitz prisoners in the cast. Here Damien Damiecki is wonderful throughout -- what a lovely young performer!
