A very warm and solid film of war and suffering, the entry point is full of gimmicks, and an ordinary life is narrated from the perspective of the god of death. The dilution is a little sad. The design of the whole story is very simple. In fact, except for the sudden turn at the end, nothing earth-shattering has ever happened. It is just a simple story of a little orphan during the war, and it is not miserable for the sake of misery. The worse, but the small environment is getting better and better gradually. The family has gradually been resolved by each other's feelings from the initial estrangement. Coupled with the various cuteness of the handsome blond boy, it seems that the warmth is far more than the sorrow. , you don't have to worry about looking too cruel. However, the problem with this kind of film is that it is a bit too bland. To be honest, skipping more than ten minutes in the middle does not affect understanding at all. If there is no story, the viewing pleasure is a bit hypnotic. Of course, this kind of film must be honest and credible, and once the legend is brought out, it will be impossible to watch. There are indeed several unforgettable passages in the film. The deepest memory is when the persecution of the Jews, the male protagonist came out and said a fair word, but when he was asked his name, he collapsed. It's brilliant. Although there are no bloody and violent scenes, the terrifying atmosphere is fully rendered. Compared with the adult drama, this film is a bit lacking in connotation, and the relationship with the war background is not too big, at least I think it belongs to the unsightly part. In short, it is a very delicate anti-war civilian story. If you have patience, you can still see a lot of moving.

    "Lisaier" went from not knowing a word to a hunger for books, so that he "stole" reading books for a long time. While enriching his own soul, it also brought spiritual comfort to the people who were shrouded in the war.

    The cruel plot of the war is not particularly good, the actors are still good
