The Black Book


Watched from 23.30hrs on 31 Dec 2007 to 03.00hrs on 1 Jan 2008, on DVD at mother's place.
A beautiful film that brings out the bright and dark sides of human nature. While I was watching this film, I was also halfway through the book, 'Night'. At first sight, it seems that the rich Jews in the film were doing o.k., comparing to the poor ones in the book. Soon the lie is broken. Cruel fate had no mercy, and all were sharing the same burden for no reasons. In a way, the poor had less treachery to deal with because they're abandoned by the world. We must open our eye to this not so distant period of human race, and pray that history does not repeat itself.
