I just watched "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas"-spoiler alert.
Very few movies have affected me like this one.Inconsolable tears,anger at man's capacity for evil,and and yet my heart was touched by a boy's innocent love for another.I highly recommend.This is a segment of history that should not fall into obscurity.

1. It really affected me, too.

My boyfriend and I saw this at the movies and it's the only movie I can think of where, when the credits started rolling, the entire audience (nearly packed house) just sat there in stunned silence and as we walked out, it was still silent, like everyone was still trying to process what they had just seen. The last 15 minutes or so are that powerful.

2. I am still affected
I hope it wins an award of some kind(it probably has).Movies are rarely made with that kind of power.
