Towards the end of World War II, people in big cities are at the mercy of air raids and death by starvation. A desperate young mother leaves her thirteen-year-old twin sons at their grandmother's house in the country, despite the fact that this grandmother is a cruel and bestial alcoholic. The villagers call her the Witch because she is rumored to have poisoned her husband long ago. Previously pampered, the twins must learn how to survive alone in their new, rural surroundings.

I saw a copy of the movie at the library about two twins brothers suviving durning war 2'.
Boy I was totally blown away in their young acting ability'. It was So powerful, so intense And most of all moving of the heart for me.' I really truely believe that this was a true story' about twin's brothers just trying to stay strong durning the war.
My heart went out to them. I too am a Mother's of twins boy. Which my twins boy never had to endurn pain and suffering like that growing up. Other then deciding what they wanted for lunch?' I guess the movie can be and dark and gloomy at times.
But war of any kind wasn't meant to be fun' Suviving was there only main issue. So, For any body who wanna see not just a good movie, about the war 2. watch this movie if you like war movies and watch it especially if you got kids? WOW" have you weeping'

Here is the start of Roger Ebert's review of this film, a review with which I agree:
""The Notebook" is a well-crafted but otherwise undistinguished and tedious entry in a long line of European films that make a grotesque show of war’s horrors, often viewed through the lens of childhood’s disabused innocence. Such films, whatever their quality, so often end up in U.S. art houses and the Oscars’ Best Foreign Film sweepstakes that it’s tempting to suspect there’s a single factory stamping them out according to formula."

The twin boys in the movie turn into sadistic brats. The grandmother is an evil woman. That is pretty much what I got out of it.

A long and very dreary story about two young boys and every one they know at the end of WWII

If you want an entertaining light-hearted film set during WW2, I would recommend "The Sound of Music". Very kid friendly, even though the Nazis are a bit scary.

Not really impressed with this film. A dark and ugly look at World War Two in Hungary. Not a film to viewed with young kids around. There are better films by Hungarians about their country and its struggles. Several about the revolution in the fifties come to mind, that are far more entertaining then this film.
