Story


Inspired by a true story, "Walking with the Enemy" follows the heroic lives of a world leader and a young man swept up in the horrors of WWII. Regent Horthy (Ben Kingsley) is the remarkable leader of Hungary and a German ally, but his favorable standing with Hitler changes as the war comes to an end. In an attempt to balance war and peace, the Regent is faced with ceding power to German adversaries or witnessing the execution of his son. As his control of the country is challenged, his enemies move Hungarians to ghettos and death camps, with no hope in sight. But the despair changes when a young man named Elek (Jonas Armstrong) emerges. Separated from his family during the relocations and aided by the woman he loves, he defies the enemy by becoming one of them. In a race against time, disguised as a Nazi Officer he embarks on a mission to save his family and thousands of his countrymen. Filled with suspense and danger, "Walking with the Enemy" is an unforgettable film of love, courage, and sacrifice.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Schmidt's debut suffers from stiffness but improves as it goes, the tension of its plot overcoming many dramatic failings..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."Walking with the Enemy" may not be another "Schindler's List" but it's handsomely photographed in Romania and a compelling addition to the Shoah canon..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“.."Walking With the Enemy" is a reminder that the Nazis always seemed to have eager boots on the ground..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]
