complex WWII thriller

This is a great movie that captures your heart and attention with in moments. Set in europe during WWII, the main character, Rachel is an undercover jew who finds her self inlaced in all of the action and espionage of the Nazi resistance. Rachel plays many roles as a spy that capture the essence of the constant terror of the time.

Very enjoyable, with twists and turns around every corner of the plot.
