Military melodrama based on the novel by Diana Ackerman, dedicated to the work of writer, participant of the Polish Resistance and the wife of zoologist Yana Zhabinsky Antonina. When Poland was occupied by the Third Reich, the Nazis begin to take out all valuable animals from the Warsaw Zoo, destroying the "extra" ones. At the same time, a Jewish ghetto is being created in Warsaw, where many of the Zhabinsky friends fall, and therefore the idea comes to the couple - to create a pig farm in a deserted establishment, allegedly for the supply of meat to German soldiers. Of course, this is just a cover, since the real goal of the Zhabinskys is to save the Jews from the ghetto and hide them in the territory of the former zoo.

Since the famous "Schindler's List" most fully illuminated the theme of saving the Jewish people during the Second World War, it was quite difficult for the filmmakers to say something new in this regard, in view of the very high quality bar set. But there were many real feats committed by people in the war years, and therefore many of these truthful stories were asked for on the screen because of the intense events and true drama. But, alas, by and large, not new masterpieces were born, but such melodramas of the Holocaust-Light, shot with emphasis on tearfulness and entourage. A similar surface-decorative tape was the "Book Thief", and "The Wife of the Zoo Warden", directed by the director of the feminist drama "The Northern Country" Niki Karo, continues to follow in the footsteps of the mentioned paintings. Of course, in the cinematographic purposes the history of the Zhabinskys underwent many changes and was significantly embellished and distorted. Caro remained true to her feminist convictions and fully focused on Antonina Zhabinskaya in the person of Jessica Chestane (real Antonina looked like Galina Brezhnev), pushing aside her husband, who played an equally important role in saving people. But a contrived love line with the German officer Lutz (Daniel Brühl with a dyed bang) is introduced into history, which, in fact, should serve as the main antagonist, but looks too pale and "malicious" for this role. Suspense, which could fill the film to the point of goosebumps, especially in the scenes of saving and transporting people, shamelessly "merges." These episodes are shown snatches, without due tension and horror, and sometimes completely frankly primitive - for example, the filmmakers obviously kept the Germans for idiots who let strangers through the gates "on parole" and, especially, in the scenes of transporting Jews in the car with Garbage, which the Nazis did not even think to poke or overturn. Karo's drama and depth do not set the cornerstone either: she does not squeeze out either the actors or the history of the maximum, which is why Chestane only melodramatically cries at the strongest moments, the controversial topic of the death of the inhabitants of European zoos does not develop at all, and the questionable and very artificially introduced Line with the legendary Janusz Korczak, who refused to leave his pupils and went with his children to death in the Treblinka concentration camp, also does not receive proper development and generally looks like an inappropriate scenario load. Critics reacted to this picture with mixed feelings, but the viewer voted purse unequivocally - the pale female shadow of the "Schindler's List" is not needed for fans of strong cinema.
