In spite of it's made for TV quality and some historical inaccuracies, this film is welcome and long overdue as a DVD, hopefully will increase awareness of this wonderful man Raoul Wallenberg. The film, Good Evening Mr. Wallenberg, is much more realistic, but in the end not as interesting as this one. Richard Chamberlain nails the character and spirit of Wallenberg, who is one of the dozens of Angels of World War II, who did all he could literally to save as many Jews in Hungary as possible as the war came to its conclusion. Everyone aware of this time knows that Hungary became a catchment for Jews fleeing other locations, and the Nazi's caught them in Spring and Summer 1944, when for all intents the war was over and even Himmler was suing for peace, but the Nazi Death Machine, aided by Adolph Eichmann and the Hungarian Fascist Arrow Cross, managed to slaughter over 450,000. Wallenberg managed to save near 100,000 and while the sentiment to save 1 life is to save the world, he deserves the world's memory and gratitude for the energy and devotion to his cause that it took to accomplish such a feat. He should be viewed in contrast and comparison to Angels like Oskar Schindler, Chiune Sugihara and the trio who saved tens of thousands of Chinese during the so called "Rape of Nanking", Nazi (not deeply committed) John Rabe and Americans Robert Wilson and Minnie Vautrin. In January 1945, Wallenberg was seized by the Soviets and sent off to the Gulag where he was said to have died in 1947, but eyewitnesses attest to seeing him as late as 1975 or even 1980.Read more ›

I am watching this movie while I even type this. For a few years, I was aware of who Raoul Wallenberg was, a Swedish secretary with the Swedish embassy in Hungary during World War Two, saving thousands of Jews from the last Nazi-dominated country to start up deportations of their Jewish population in early to late 1944. Sadly, he was arrested, thrown into prison, and died in captivity by the RUSSIANS of all people! The Russians, despite his protective status as a Swedish diplomat, accused him as a spy and had him killed. But I NEVER was made aware that a movie was made about Wallenberg in his honor! This movie came out when I was born, but it might as well be a brand-new movie anyway, which I rate at five stars. The movie goes a lot into the discussion of how Hungary's leader, Admiral Horthy, would purposely suspend deportations of Jews by the thousands despite the growing demands from Nazi Germany and Colonel Eichmann of the SS to deport the 250,000 remaining Jews in the Budapest area alone, and how Wallenberg would risk a lot for his own safety to save as many of the Jews as he could by employing them at the Swedish embassy and making safe houses that would fly the Swedish flag. This movie is completely excellent, all 3 hours of it, and is well worth the money spent and the time used in watching it. Highly recommended to anyone who is a history buff of World War Two topics!

A masterful depiction of the rescue of thousands of Jews from the death camps. A riveting story. 4:3 but doesn't detract from the story. Have been looking for this for years. So Glad they finally released it. Richards best work. Thanks. God bless Israel.

I had never heard of Mr Wallenberg until I watched this movie. What a wonderful, brave man. It does bother me that we don't know what really happened to him. Richard Chamberlain's portrayal of Mr Wallenberg was great (he usually is great). A good movie for history buffs.

I am very pleased that they released this long over due
film! Only one complaint I have is that it is not the whole
movie; 187 minutes. I am glad I taped in SP mode and transferred
to DVD when the film was on the old 'True TV' network in 2 parts
which added up to 202 minutes. Sometimes I don't understand why
studios can't release an entire film!.

By Darrell Stoddard, darrellstoddard@gmail.com

Raoul Wallenberg is credited with saving near 100,000 Hungarian Jews. At the peril of his life he defied the Nazis innumerable times. Read a summary of Wallenberg's unbelievable courage to save Hungarian Jews on Google: "Profile of a Leader: The Wallenberg Effect." See Wallenberg's complete story in the book "Righteous Gentile" available used from amazon.com from a number of book dealers for one cent plus $3.99 for shipping and handling. EVERY reviewer gave the book 5 stars! Unlike Schindler, Wallenberg had only his humanity and no ulterior motive in saving Jews; and he probably saved more Jews than Schindler.

Few Motion pictures can compare to the book. The motion picture "Wallenberg: A Hero's Story" may even be equal to the book "Righteous Gentile"! Both the book and the movie will lift your very being to heaven. Man at his best is so good, so noble, so Christ like, that we would throw a cover over men and women when they are less. Mankind needs Hero's like Wallenberg to lift and redeem us. It will make anyone a better person to make the book or the motion picture a part of their life.

See all of my Reviews. I write only about books, events, or motion pictures that have changed the course of history or unforgettable books or motion pictures that will totally change peoples lives.
