|Is that not the coolest hat?|
My husband hated this movie because like everyone else probably thought, he assumed Daniel Craig was really going to kick some tail. I mean, dude's on the cover of the box, right? Mr. Schreiber was the real star in this movie. Okay, fine. I just think he's hot and he made one hell of a take-charge alpha. Let's move on.
Zus has a fight with Tuvia and leaves to join the Soviet partisan, who agreed to protect the Jews in exhange for supplies. Winter comes. There isn't enough food for the refugees, the camp is full of sickness and spirits are generally down. Tuvia's leadership is in question over all this misery. Obviously there's constant news that the Nazis are killing the Jews left and right. When news comes that the Nazis are going to attack the camp, the refugees flee, leaving on some people behind to slow down the ground troops. This meager attempt at defense doesn't last long before Asael, another of the brothers calls it off and they leave to rejoin the camp. Caught between a rock and a hard place, Tuvia starts to attack the German soldiers. All of the sudden, here comes Zus with a band of Soviet partisan soldiers who have apparently, gosh, 'abandoned their posts' seems like a harsh way to put it... um, they want to help and they didn't ask permission. With the help of the Soviets, the Jewish people are able to fight off the Nazis and escape further harm.
Sadly, the Jewish refugees continued to live in the forest for two more years and a total of about 1,200 people came to stay there.
