Defiance

Category – History ; Rating  – 3.5 ; Comment – Choice of Freedom is with the individual!!

Ok, it was the Daniel Craig factor to start with  –  ofcourse, who will not recognize the Bond….James Bond!!    When the movie progressed, all I saw was the strength of the Jewish leader who had so much positive outlook and humanity even during the toughest times of second world war!!
Adapted from Nechama Tec’s book “Defiance: The Bielski Partisans”, this movie gives the account of the life of Bielki Partisans. They were led by four Jewish brothers who saved the Jews during the tough world war 2 days in Poland

While the entire movies plot is available readily in Wikipedia if you care to read, the following are something you will notice when you watch the movie
Leadership skills  –  When you put others in front of you, you become a leader in no time                                                Theories of Viktor Frankl  –  Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedom to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way
Concept of Right and Wrong –  While Tuvia wants to be a fair leader,  his younger brother Zus gets carried away and joins the Soviet  –   while it looks bad, Zus strongly exhibits the school of thought that what matters is the END and not how we reach there;
Love for life  –  When they initially decide to ban newborns into the camp and when it actually happens, the way they react –  again establishes the fact that women are much stronger than men!!  🙂  

A movie to watch!!!
