|To combat the overwhelming depression and suicide that pervades the ghetto, Jakob tells fictitious news bulletins about Allied advances against the Nazis.
IN THEATRES SEPTEMBER 24, 1999
By David Bruce
|CAST: ROBIN WILLIAMS, ALAN ARKIN, BOB BALABAN, MICHAEL JETER, ARMIN MUELLER-STAHL, LIEV SCHREIBER
DIRECTED BY PETER KASSOVITZ
SCREENPLAY BY PETER KASSOVITZ & DIDIER DECOIN AND RON HUTCHINSON
In Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II, poor Jewish café owner Jakob (Robin Williams) accidentally overhears a forbidden radio news bulletin signaling Soviet military successes against German forces. To combat the overwhelming depression and suicide that pervades the ghetto, Jakob tells fictitious news bulletins about Allied advances against the Nazis. These lies keep hope and humor alive among the ghetto inhabitants-spirits are lifted, hearts are refreshed and hope is reborn. The Germans learn of the mythical radio, however, and begin a search for the resistance hero who dares operate it
This seems like the perfect role for Robin Willams (Patch Adams). The movie seems to have a Life is Beautiful taste to it. A the name Jakob is perfect for a Jewish man who deceives, because the Jacob of Hebrew scriptues was a deciever too.
Hello Hoping someone can help me! I need to get ahold of Peter Kassovitz the director of Jakob the Liar. He and my father escaped Hungary together in 1956 they have not seen or spoken to each other since. I would like for them to reunite! If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.
