The Shop on Main Street

Posted by martinteller on November 6, 2005

Two WWII movies today.  This one explores the crisis of conscience that afflicts a well-meaning, hen-pecked man in 1941 Czechoslovakia, tasked with being the “Aryan manager” of a small Jewish-owned button shop.  Tragic and comic (but mostly tragic) with excellent performances by the two leads.  Occasionally drags its heels, but otherwise a fine and thought-provoking work that makes you ask yourself “What would I do?”.  Rating: 8
