Ludi Boeken's earnest adaptation of Marga Spiegel's memoir sheds new light on that much-filmed topic, the Holocaust, largely because it takes place in a small German town over the course of the war, providing a microcosm of a society in the throes of a historical catastrophe. During the Nazi round-up of the Jews, Marga (Veronica Ferres, a ringer for Naomi Watts) and her daughter seek refuge with the Aschoffs, a family of local farmers. The two fugitives are blond-haired and can pass for German, but Marga's husband, Menne (Armin Rohde), who earned an Iron Cross in WWI, must lie low because he doesn't look Aryan. Meanwhile, the Aschoffs' risk increases as the war runs its course and the young people in the village grow more avid for the Führer. Suspenseful, heartbreaking, and uplifting, Saviors is a worthy entry in the Holocaust genre.
