Directed by Alberto Negrin
Luca Zingaretti stars in this made-for-TV Italian-language drama which brings to life the true story of Giorgio Perlasca, an Italian who risked his life to save Jews in Second World War Hungary.
Though Perlasca (Zingaretti) was initially a supporter of Italian fascism and fought for Mussolini in East Africa during the Italo-Abyssinian War, he became increasingly disenchanted with the doctrine as it merged with Hitler's anti-Semitic vision.
In 1944, while based in Budapest for the purposes of business, Perlasca was confronted directly with the horror of the Holocaust and, unlike so many others, didn't turn a blind eye but did whatever he could to save lives.
