Screener Squad: Sobibor

Sobibor Movie Review


We may not be able to pronounce the name, but we certainly understand the heavy drama featured in Sobibor.

Lara and Bradly are here to tell you about Russia’s entry to last year’s Best Foreign Language Film category with this WWII Holocaust drama. Based on a story set within the infamous Sobibor concentration camp in Poland, we follow the Soviet-Jewish soldier Alexander (Konstantin Khabensky) as he is captured by the Nazis. While dealing with the infamous SS officer Karl Frenzel (Christopher Lambert), Alexander plots what will eventually become the largest (and only) prisoner escape from an internment camp. How did he do it? Listen here to find out and to see if it is worth watching the film’s portrayal.


Directed by: Konstantin Khabensky

Starring: Konstantin Khabensky, Christopher Lambert
