A Sympathetic adaptation
4 August 2001 | by simonstudiosSee all my reviews

This is actually a very sympathetic adaptation of the original novel by Leon Feuchtwanger (who was himself Jewish), and should not be confused with the Nazi travesty of 1940, which was a crude, anti-semitic propaganda vehicle.
