The harsh life of a book lover

Before the second world war, after meeting her adoptive family and learning how to read and write, a girl falls in love with books which happen to become banned by the Nazi. While struggling in her new life, poverty being very common, she makes new and unexpected friends, one of them being a Jew hidden in her family's basement, and starts "borrowing" books from a wealthy family which had a full library of them. The girl's life is presented in a dramatic manner with her strong emotions, her adventures, her losses and gains. It's tense in a lot of situations due to its harsh conditions, generated mainly by the upcoming war, but it manages to maintain suspense until the end. It's hard to explain in a few words what happens but I can guarantee that it's worth your time especially if you enjoy such movies with kids, which by the way, play some great roles!

Lovely touching tale

I loved the movie so much on first viewing that I went out and bought the book. One of those occasions however where the movie is better than the written word. It surprises me that it seemed somewhat overlooked when on first release. Yes it is a bit too sentimental in places but that is what movies are sometimes meant to be, to take us out of our drab existence. The soundtrack is excellent too and by John Williams of course. In time I expect this to be a Christmas Day movie.

Sophie Nélisse!

Sophie Nélisse carries this film like a boss with a great supporting cast. If you like films about the European Theater during WWII, then this one will really surprise you with its focus on the world of the typical German of that time period and how he or she understood what Hitler and his regime was doing. This is a great film to place beside THE HIDING PLACE and LITTLE BOY, though the former is not of the Childhood Drama genre. I rarely give a film 10 out of 10, but if one deserves it, this one does. The photography, the acting, the dialogue-- everything, really--makes this one an instant classic. The world's new sweetheart? Sophie Nélisse, of course!
