Perlasca: The Courage of a Just Man

Giorgio Perlasca was an Italian cattle-dealer who found himself trapped in war-torn Hungary in 1944, yet he witnessed such brutal treatment of Hungarian Jews that he risked his own freedom to help them – even facing up to none other than notorious Nazi Adolf Eichmann.   Luca Zingaretti stars in this well-deserved tribute to Perlasca, the Italian hero who dared to act when principles no longer counted for anything and in the process saved thousands of Jews from the Holocaust. This stirring drama, dubbed ‘a heart-rending Italian Schindler’s List’ by the New York Post, features a striking score by Academy Award®-winner Ennio Moricone.
