Movie Description:
1942. Gilles, a young Belgian man, is arrested by the SS alongside other Jews and sent to a concentration camp in Germany. He narrowly avoids execution by swearing to the guards that he is not Jewish, but Persian. This lie temporarily saves him, but then Gilles is assigned a seemingly untenable mission: to teach Persian to Koch, the officer in charge of the camp's kitchen, who dreams of opening a restaurant in Persia (Iran) once the war is over. Gilles finds himself having to invent a language he doesn't know, word by word. As the unusual relationship between the two men begins to incite jealousy and suspicion, Gilles becomes acutely aware that one false move could expose his swindle.

    After a long and unsuccessful period trying to have a family, Claire and Adrian finally adopt a girl. The arrival of Isabel is welcomed by almost the whole family, but adjusting an eight-year-old girl with a past of her own to a new life might be something more complicated than they expected. Strange things start to happen from the moment Isabel and "her imaginary friend Stevie" come to live with them. The situation becomes more complicated when Stevie's behavior becomes aggressive. Only Claire and Isabel know that Stevie is more than just a figment of Isabel's imagination. Claire will do everything to find out who Stevie is and what he wants. Perhaps if she succeeds, she will be able to recoup their lives and have the family she had desired for so long.



Sort of ordinary, after those extraordinary films about world war 2.

Very great movie

If you like ww2, and drama...I think you would like that movie, go in

Riveting premise... excellent drama...

A Jewish prisoner, at the height of WWII, pretends to be Persian in order to teach the camp commandant the language he dreams of learning. His life depends on inventing, and remembering, the words to his farcical Farsi. This riveting drama is superbly acted by the two central leads, and wonderfully directed by Vadim Perelman.
