The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
The film tells the story of the eight-year-old Bruno, son of the commandant of a concentration camp, who moves with his family from war-struck Berlin to a house close to the Auschwitz concentration camp. And this is where the forbidden friendship between Bruno and a Jewish boy comes to life. There is nothing strange about two boys becoming friends, but the problem is that they are separated by the barbed wire of the concentration camp. Such friendship was banned at that time, and that is why it brought many hardships and unexpected consequences.
