An exploration of identity and how fluid it can be, especially when it's dependant on survival. The film itself can feel fragmented at points, not a necessarily negative issue since it's a memoir, but it could be more cohesive of the the whole experience.
I found the film weirdly dated. As there have been so many films about the Jewish experience of the Holocaust there was not much that made this one stand apart. There were some tremendous visuals and some fascinating vignettes but on the whole I did not the find the protagonist to be compelling as a character despite the fact that it was a true story. A worthwhile viewing for those fascinated by the era.
