Description
Based on the 1969 Heinrich-Mann Prize–winning novel of the same name by Jurek Becker, this 1999 film stars Robin Williams as Jakob Heym, a Jewish café owner in a Polish ghetto during the Nazi occupation. Accused of breaking curfew, Jakob is ordered to the commandant's office, where he overhears a radio broadcast about Soviet advances into Poland. Miraculously released to return home, Jakob talks about the news, sparking rumors of a secret radio, and decides to invent his own radio reports, giving the rest of the ghetto hope while also covering his real secret: he is hiding a young orphan (Hannah Taylor-Gordon) who escaped deportation. Alan Arkin, Liev Schreiber, and Bob Balaban co-star, and the DVD includes a making-of featurette.
