Jacob The Liar

Facing starvation or deportation to the Nazi death camps, the residents of a Polish ghetto during World War II live without hope until Jacob begins to pass on good, though mostly false, news. His gift for storytelling, however, cannot change the heartbreaking fate of his neighbors. A touching blend of humor and tragedy. Vlastimil Brodsky won Best Actor honors at the Berlin International Film Festival and the film was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film. With Armin Mueller-Stahl in a supporting role. The film was remade in 1999 with Robin Williams in the title role.
