The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a British-American drama film directed by Mark Herman. It is based on the John Boyne novel of the same name.

Bruno is an eight year old boy who leads a very comfortable life in Berlin during the Second World War. His father is a high ranking Nazi officer, and things change when the family has to move due to his father’s new post. Bruno spends his time in his room with no friends. He is also annoyed by the fact that they live in a three story house instead of their old five-story mansion, and with such a small space, there isn't any room for exploration (a hobby of Bruno's) to be done. From his bedroom window, Bruno spots a fence with people in striped pyjamas behind it. These are the Jews, and they are in a concentration camp. So, in boredom and confusion he wonders what is going on at Out-With and why people are always dressed in striped pyjamas there.
Bruno, unaware of the reason behind the War, becomes friends with a Jewish boy, named Shmuel . Shmuel's father goes missing (the boys are unaware that he has most definitley been killed) and Bruno decides to break into the prison camp, disguised as a worker to help him find his father...

If you want to know the end of the story, you´ll have to read this wonderful story. Or you can also go to the cinema to watch the film.

But remember: probably, there will be some tears on your face when you leave...
