J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Grey Zone

This is a chamber play. What makes it so special? It leads us, you and me, instantly and individually, right into „the grey zone“. In other words, it ultimatively raises the question: how far would you go to survive? You have to ask yourself: what I would have done? What is dignity, humanity? And it also shows that at least a few Jews took their fate in their own hands.
