Movie to Tape

May 25, 1997|Kevin Thomas

Europa Europa (TMC early Wednesday at 12:35 a.m.) A superb intimate epic, masterfully written and directed by Agnieszka Holland from Solomon Perel's autobiography about his harrowing, sometimes darkly humorous experiences as a young Polish-Jewish refugee who hides his identity only to wind up drafted into the German Army. A fresh, dynamic perspective on the absurdity of war and prejudice and a stirring saga of survival. With Marco Hofschneider in a memorable portrayal of Perel, who now makes his home in Israel.
