This week Jews and others around the globe celebrated Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, observed each year since 1959 to "never forget" the murder of six million Jews during Globe Fight II. Loosely based on a novel of the same name by Canadian creator Anne Michaels, Fugitive Pieces by Jeremy Podeswa whose father was a Holocaust survivor, touches on an often-overlooked aspect of the tragedy, that those who have managed to survive deep trauma may be unable to rid themselves of their obsessions. The movie spans a period of roughly 35 years, beginning in 1942 and concluding in the late 1970, going back and forth in time between the happenings of childhood and show time. Set in Biskupin, Poland during Globe Fight II, seven-year old Jakob Beer (Robbie Kay) witnesses the murder of his parents and the abduction of his beloved sister Bella by German soldiers.Disregarding Bella's instructions to remain at home, Jakob runs away. Hiding in the forest, he plants himself into the ground "like a turnip", hiding his face with leaves until he is discovered by Athos Roussos (Rade Serbedzija), a warm hearted Zorba-like Greek archaeologist on a dig. Athos brings the traumatized man to his home on the sun-drenched island of Zakynthos in Greece where they live through the Nazi occupation, suffering deprivation but surviving the atrocities that befall Greece's Jewish community. The relationship between Jakob and Athos is slow to develop but they eventually form a bond. "I will be your koumbaros, your godfather," Athos says. "We gotta carry every other. If we don't have this, what are we?" After the war, Athos receives a teaching position in Canada and they transport there hoping to forget the past. Jakob, actually played as an adult by Stephen Dillane, has neighbors who are also Jewish immigrants and he develops a close relationship with Ben (Ed Stoppard) who he watches grow into a gifted writer. Though Jakob has become a successful writer in Canada himself, his marriage to the lovely Alex (Rosamund Pike) is threatened by haunting memories of Bella and his obsession with the Holocaust. Her vivacity and joy for life is in sharp contrast to his solemnity and he "longs for the loss of memory", and writes about his wife's "shameless vitality" saying, "To live with ghosts requires solitude".After their breakup, Jakob falls in love with Micheala (Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer), a scholar twenty-five years his junior, and her charm and intelligence allows him to venture out of his shell. Fugitive Pieces is a quiet and sensitive movie that has a touching poetic quality and Robbie Kay turns in one of the greatest kid performances I have seen in years. Though the movie often becomes too literary and does not soar dramatically, its message is powerful - that though we could never forget a tragedy, there may be a steep price for remembering.
Moving, beautifully crafted, wonderful performances, direct, poetic, raw. I was so moved by this film, I search it difficult to compose finished sentences to describe it. This film touched and inspired each cell in my body. The acting by the whole cast was precise and authentic. How were they able to compile this cast? How did they manage to extract these performances? The writing is intelligent, sensitive, moving and direct. This is a rare script. Every stage in this film needed such an investment by the whole movie team to reach its rare authenticity. The courage it would take to produce this movie escapes me. While the effect deserves the highest awards, this is not a movie that was made for the sake of popularity. This movie feels like a labor of love and the effect of the truest of intentions. My hat is off to anyone who participated in this film.
This is a pretty well crafted movie. I was struck by how the film doesn't fill in the blanks for you, but gives you a possibility to imagine what the characters are feeling and thinking. The cinematography is exquisite, contrasting the light of the scenes in Greece with the darkness of the scenes where the young Jakob is escaping from the Nazis. One quote from the film is that "it is not extraordinary that wood can burn, but that it can float". You don't have to be a descendant of a Holocaust victim to appreciate the very powerful message delivered by the movie, that you can either be consumed with the fire of your past life's horrors or let yourself to float and survive and thrive.technolog
