Based on the autobiography I Was Hitler Youth Salomon *by Solomon Perel (who makes a cameo), *Europa Europa is Polish director Holland’s tense, riveting, yet occasionally humorous drama about one young Polish Jew’s ability to survive the Nazis — by pretending to be one. Young star Marco Hofschneider brings a boyish innocence and subtle nuance to a character whose survival instincts, detailed in Holland’s episodic approach, take him from Kristallnacht to a Soviet orphanage to becoming an interpreter for the Nazis to a Hitler youth who falls for a Nazi sympathizer, all while hiding his identity. Holland’s screenplay adaptation was nominated for an Academy Award. — Laura Emerick
