The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas Joe'S REVIEW
Do not watch unless suicidal
Very Depressing movie. Not that Holocaust movies are ever cheery, there was no release for the audience. Nothing uplifting, just depression. I dont know how this movie got a pg-13 rating. There was no redeeming value in this historically inaccurate film and the gassing of the two boys at the end. It took days to recover from watching that. Schindler's List or Life is Beautiful at least had a release at the end of the movie. With no release at the end of the movie you are left with nothing. I guess im just angered that this movie still has left me depressed after 3 days. The ending was truly horrific and this movie deserved a rating of R.
Sorry if the Holocaust was depressing for you. This movie is an ideal educational tool albeit fiction. Lest we forget.
