I thought all the performances were authentic. It drags you kicking and screaming back to why we really fought Hitler and his thugs in the first place. The film shows the true plight of anyone whom the nazis considered enemies and subhuman. It was--"in the blood" as the pseudo-scientific idiots exclaimed, even babies and small children were murdered. The film shows how the shallowest of us can change and save the innocent without reward. It is not for children or the faint of heart.
This story tells the amazing story of humanity in one of the darkest places in human history. As a world war 2 buff, I am very surprised I never saw this movie, I was expecting it to tell the tale of the murderous nazis the entire time, but the movie is actually about an angel in disguise. God bless Steven Spielberg for telling this story. In memory of the people who were murdered during the Holocaust. And jews who were persecuted and continue to be persecuted. May we one day all stand united, in humanity.

I've only seen a few clips, but gosh, this movie really hits me. Tragic and realistic. The movie disturbed me more than any movie or movie clip, and really gets me to question myself and my humanity, although I'm neither a German nor a Jew. Spielberg greatly exemplifies how events like these should never happen in the first place and should never happen again in world history. Really touching and sad.
