A Soviet prisoner leads a successful revolt in a Nazi death camp during WWII.


Why watch this film?

Stories of World War II and the Holocaust abound in cinema, most of them told from a European or American perspective. 'Sobibor' is interesting for the simple fact of presenting another point of view, that of the Russians, even if its slow pace requires patience from the viewer. In the story we meet one of the deadliest concentration camps for Jews, in Sobibor, Poland, where a Soviet soldier of Jewish origin leads a great revolt. The cast also features Christopher Lambert, the eternal Connor MacLeod of the 'Highlander' franchise.
