The boy in the striped pyjamas
[The reason why I chose this film]
I am always interested in movies that reveal human’s dark side.
It was a hard experience watching this move, it makes me depressed and cornered. A little boy who’s father is a Commander in Hitler’s army is moved to a house where near the place heid father worked. His father is just pointed as a person in charge of a camp where the Jew was collected and sent into gas chamber while the world war Ⅱ. Bruno—the little boy did miss his old-day friends deadly and he felt fed up with soldiers here. He is always dreaming of being a Explorer, but the back garden is forbidden for him to get in. Someday when no one notice him, he get through the small window and across a forest eventually reached a camp which he used to think it was farm. He met a boy in the striped pyjamas, he is small,bold and always hungry. He doesn’t dare to speak to or even look Bruno at first but soon they become friends. Since then, Bruno commonly go to play with Shmul when he is able to sneak out. At the same time Bruno and sister get a tutor who doesn’t allow Bruno reading adventure books. Instead, he forced Bruno to read those history books on which the Jew was described as devils and vermins. One day, Shmul is asked to clean the glasses with his small hands in Bruno’s home, Bruno give him some cakes to eat. Herr Kolter who is a officer under Bruno’s father thought that Shmul was stealing, he is so serious that Bruno cannot tell the truth, so Shmul is strictly punished. Bruno hasn’t seen Shmul for several days, when he see Shmul again, Shmul gets an awful hurt on his face, Bruno feels guilty and promise that he will get in and help Shmul to find his missing father. The day Bruno is supposed to get away here, he get in the camp. When his father finds him he was already died in the gas chamber with Shmul hand in hand.
Such a topic always take my breath away, the emotion it delivered reamins a long period. The war is cruel but the human beings more. The ending is already wrote inthe history book and it will never be a happy ending.
Bruno: He is a little angel with bright eyes and clean clothes. He has no idea how dark is the world, all he wanna do is to be a explorer, but this time, he should have stayed in his little warm house. All what he saw in the video tape is fake, all what he learned by the tutor is fake, but he still think that his father is only try to wash the Jew by taking them into the gas chamber, what a mock.
Shmul: He gets a pair of blue eyes, he suffers from Malnutrition, he is kind and innocent. When he give his hand to Bruno to foegive what Bruno did, I feel too sad to say a word. When ur life is not what u can choose or control is will be kind of sorrow in the vein.
Father: He loves his family and children, but being a soldier what he can do is obeying the orders. At the end, he lost his son, I know that he is disconsolate inside, but what about the jew who lost their family.
Herr Kolter: He is a serious officer, cold-blooded and barbarous, what happened to him is what he deserves.
Mother: She is a really good woman, but what her husband is doing is not what she can intervene.
Sister: A little who is educated with a strong hate to Jews. She is a lanmentable instance in that product.
[Lines that I learned]
Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour of the reason grows.
Spoil things 扫兴
Home is where the family is.
Fed up =boring get fed up with
Out of the bounds=forbidden
