I think one of the finest films dealing with the holocaust, although perhaps in a less head-on way than, say, Schindler's List, is Au Revoir Les Enfants. It's about a Catholic headmaster who allows three Jewish pupils to hide from the Nazis in his school. One of the most moving endings in all cinema.

About "Island on Bird Street": when I mentioned it earlier, I hadn't actually seen it, but my copy had arrived in the mail this morning. I have watched it since, and can tell you that it is a powerful bit of film-making. No doubt many will want to compare it with "Edges of the Lord", but I would have to say that the film it evoked in me most strongly was "Empire of the Sun"---both were based on autobiographical novels, though it must be said that "Empire of the Sun" seems to have had the larger budget of the two. Both films also boast a powerful music score, though "Island..."'s is more downplayed. It will be interesting to see whether Jordan Kiziuk, the young star of "Island...", will have as long and varied a film career as hasd Christian Bale.

jpmccusa is not the first to hail Kiziuk's performance, so I was surprised to learn he never acted again. It's been 7 years since "Bird Street" was shot.
