Movie Info

From Academy Award (R) winning director Caroline Link (Nowhere in Africa)'s comes an adaptation of acclaimed British author Judith Kerr's classic novel based on her childhood memories. The story of a Jewish family's escape from 1933 Berlin to Europe tackles prejudice, exile, displacement and adaptation, as told from the perspective of the author's alter ego, nine year-old Anna Kemper (Riva Krymalowski in her feature film debut). Anna is too busy with schoolwork and friends to notice Hitler's face glaring from posters plastered all over 1933 Berlin. But when her father (Oliver Masucci) -- based on the prominent theater critic Alfred Kerr -- suddenly vanishes, the family is secretly hurried out of Germany. Anna begins to understand life will never be the same as she and her family navigate unfamiliar lands and cope with the challenges of being refugees.

Critic Reviews for When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit (Als Hitler das rosa Kaninchen stahl)

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8)

In this film we see that the humanity and understanding Judith Kerr kept intact in her warm heart are sensitively portrayed by director Caroline Link and her talented cast.

January 10, 2022 | Full Review…

Overall, it just didn't seem as if there was enough real danger happening in this movie given what it's really about.

June 3, 2021 | Full Review…

A moving but unsentimental WWII exodus story...

May 21, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In this bright, engaging film, Kerr's story is faithfully and lovingly preserved, though its tougher, quirkier details are mollified by a layer of palatable movie gloss.

The film strains to inject even a modicum of drama.

May 20, 2021 | Full Review…

A handsomely produced but modest effort that addresses important historical subjects sensitively but truthfully.
