A powerful retelling of a time in history where standing up for what was right often meant sacrificing your life. The acting was excellent, the lead of which Jonas Armstrong carried off brilliantly. I tried to see this in the theaters but my local theater only showed it for a couple days. By the time I heard it was playing and got there they were no longer playing it. Too bad because we need more movies like this in our theaters. If you haven't watched it, do so. It's a very touching movie about the value of all human life.

The Synopsis for Walking with the Enemy (2014) 720p
A powerful new film inspired by a true story. This feature follows the heroic lives of a world leader and a young man swept up in the horrors of WWII. Both men are from Hungary--a country and German ally that had been spared the atrocities orchestrated by Hitler throughout much of Europe. As the war reaches its climax, Germany begins to doubt the loyalties of the Hungarian leadership-in particular Regent Horthy (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley). The Regent tries to navigate his country between the growing terror of Nazi Germany and the oppressive threat of communist Russia. He is ultimately faced with ceding power to another political party or accepting the execution of his son. As the crisis unfolds, thousands of his citizens are forced underground or put into ghettos. One of them is a young man named Elek Cohen (Jonas Armstrong) who is separated from his family and determined to find them. Aided by the woman he loves (Hannah Tointon), Elek disguises himself as a Nazi SS officer ...

Excellent!Reviewed byLynnette BonnerVote: 10/10
Not having any connection with Hungary I never knew of its history during WW2, though I did know that thousands of Hungarian Jews and Roma were murdered by the Nazis. So this was very interesting to me from a historical perspective. This story is from a real-life hero, a Hungarian Jew whose courage -chutzpah - saved hundreds of his own people. There are many other heroes, the Catholic priests who forged baptismal certificates; the nuns whose convent sheltered Jewish children, the Swiss diplomats, and ordinary people willing to befriend their Jewish neighbors. Unfortunately, we also see the worst of human nature. I found it very compelling. Giving it a 10 because the film makers wove the politics of Hungary into the story, perhaps recognizing that unlike war movies about France or Italy, people needed to be told what was going on at the Government level in Hungary during the War. After the War it was closed to Western eyes and therefore not many stories of resistance came out of it. It could have been very confusing trying to figure out the moves by those in power, particularly the delicate balancing act of the Regent as he tried to protect Hungary and her people, all of them, from bloodshed.
I was captivated from beginning to the end with Walking with the Enemy--Although it clearly shows the horrors of the Holocaust taking place in Hungary, it also is a true story of hope and is ultimately a hero's journey. For this reason, it had me cheering until the end. Far too few films about the Holocaust focus on the Jewish resistance--kudos to the producers who carve out a place for one of these Jewish heroes in the history of the Holocaust. This is a true story of a young Jew brave enough to stand against Hitler's horror machine by dressing as a Nazi SS officer, rescuing men, women and children from extermination. The film opened my eyes to this little known fact --there were some Jews who stood strong against evil. What an incredible story and tribute to an amazing young man. The editing and storytelling were seamless which made the film both entertaining and yet meaningful. The cinematography was excellent. Although painful to watch, Walking with the Enemy finds a balance between hope and the truth of horror. The ending brought tears to my eyes, wow..brilliant..a slice of life story of the Holocaust I otherwise wouldn't know about. Overall , I recommend this film to a wide audience from 18-64, men and women interested in a story about an unsung hero.
