Cliches, subpar acting undercut effect of Holocaust drama.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Walking with the Enemy is a drama set in World War II Hungary, right as the local authorities were forced to collaborate with the Nazis' efforts to deport the until-then relatively protected Jewish population. Inspired by a true story about a young Jewish man who posed as an SS officer, the movie is quite violent, although much of it is in the form of hearing loud gunfire, without the follow through of seeing the dead bodies. But there are some scenes when people are shot at close range; plus, a man is nearly tortured, a young woman is nearly raped, and people are executed both en masse and individually. Besides the violence, which never quite lets up throughout the movie, there's not much content of concern; expect a few passionate kisses and some incidental drinking by adult characters.
