If you like boxing and WWII dramas, this movie is for you. Personally, i prefer the also based on a true story movie about the greek boxer Salamo Arouch, filmed in the real Auschwitz camp, “Triumph of the Spirit (1989) with Willem Dafoe.
Boxing as a way out … or is it?
Just the background of this movie is incredible and it is hard not to feel emotional. With the situation in general and our main “character” (based on actual events), this packs a punch (as some have already noted here). The performance is gripping and the tragedy that unfolds is actually crushing.
Having lived in a period like that obviously would’ve been even more crushing. But the movie does not sugar coat anything either. And while a couple of other boxing movies get nods and recognition (Southpaw or more recent Creed, deservedly so too by the way), this is an underrated and well shot movie, that actually has a lot to say too
