Excellent performances by Tony Award winner Tom (Whose Life Is It Anyway?) Conti, Lisa Eichhorn and Eli Wallach add power to this excellent dramatization of John Hersey's 1950 novel. The horrific story of resistance to the Nazis in 1943 by the Warsaw Ghetto's doomed Jewish community was filmed in Poland before the recent political crackdown.
