“★★★★ Following Jojo Rabbit, here’s a less zany child’s view of Nazi Germany. A nuanced story of resilience touchingly brought to life.” - The Times
It’s 1933, and nine-year-old Anna’s carefree childhood is disrupted when her parents decide to flee Germany. In their search for safety and livelihood, the close-knit family moves first to Switzerland, then Paris and finally, London – each move presents great challenges, but even greater rewards. Though she still harbours hopes of returning to Berlin, Anna gradually learns that home is wherever she is free to love, imagine and dream.
Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Caroline Link and based on the beloved best-selling novel by Judith Kerr, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit offers a moving perspective on the experience of German Jews who fled the country before the war, while superbly capturing the magic of childhood.
