Toyland (Spielzeugland) is a war drama by German filmmaker Jochen Fredank. I think that this short film reflects the historical background well so that the audience is naturally attracted to its real-like setting. and, sure, for something who remains out of words. Julia Jäger, on the other hand, the lead actress has been very prolific before and after this film. The Jews are being expelled from Berlin, sent east on cattle cars. The lie the Jew mother tells is similar to the lie of Life is Beautiful. It is set in Germany some time during World War II and The Holocaust.Marianne Meissner is a mother living in an apartment building with a young son, Heinrich. And, I am still wondering whether the mother saves her neighborhood child intentionally from the beginning or notices that his child is not on train and saves his neighborhood child unintentionally. With sparse dialogue, director Jochen Alexander Freydank keeps us hooked throughout this superb short film. The background of this story is during of war in Germany. It is about one of the biggest and the most shocking events in human history so that the ending may be too light. Watching unsatisfied David and the conversation between David and Heinrich, Jewish friend of David, we come to see why David vanishes from his bed. I'll update this review after the awards are given. Good filmmakers don't need a feature to make powerful movies, Very good and probably the odds on favorite for the Oscar. ***This review may contain spoilers*** But, I still have a question about the consequence either way. One day, a German boy tries to go on a trip to Toyland with his best friend. I love this film, especially the way to reveal the fact. In the end, the mother finds the police and stop the train in time before it goes away. Exactly one year later, on 22 January 2008, the film received its German premiere at the Saarbrücken "Film Festival Max Ophüls Preis". Many people die or hurt by World war two. This short film builds a lot of tension into the idea that the woman may be too late to save her son. They are good friends with the Silbersteins, a Jewish couple with a son, David. I was looking on iTunes for this short film that one an Oscar called "Toyland" and on iTunes it says "Explicit" and I was wondering if anyone who has seen it could tell me why it is expilcit and what the content is. Unbeknownst to the boy, Toyland is not the magical place he thinks it is, but is in fact a concentration camp. I think that the mother saves him simply for his son and the Jewish parents. However, their situation is changing to danger. Marianne realizes that Heinrich is not with them, but - to save his life - calls out to David as though he is Heinrich. The actress who played the mother did a fine job, as did the piano teacher. She is the one during the accion of looking for the boy. I have seen some pictures of it and I was shocked by the disastrous scene. In the next scene of David and Heinrich playing the piano together, we finally understand why David is missing. They manage to make a good, happy, at least an optimistic ending for it. The deportation of the Silbersteins to a concentration camp is imminent, and when Heinrich asks why they may have to go soon, Frau Meißner does not tell Heinrich the truth. First, it would be quite unlikely for a little kid to sneaks out of his room in the early morning without being noticed by any family members in his house, and it is often the case with such a young boy that he forgets the words he tells others yesterday.

The tone of the film was really dark and it can be told by the filter and the music in film.

I liked it because the structure of this film and acting are wonerful. The crowd moves aside and Marianne sees a boy she thinks is Heinrich hugging the Silbersteins, but instead it is David. In every sequence such as finding the teddy bear, being suspected as Jewish by the police, and final arrival to the train where David is, the contents are considerably concentrated, and I couldn't avert my eyes. "Toyland" is a short film which is about a German boy who follows his Jewish friend who is actually going to a concentration camp. The mother cannot honestly tell David the cruel truth about entrainment of Jewish, and instead lies that they will go to "Toyland." The fact that it takes place in winter is important because death is associated with winter. This film is a sad story that happened in Germany in 1942. The sheep are stolen, but Gonzorgo and Roderigo, Barnaby's henchmen, double-cross him by selling Tom to a band of gypsies instead, leaving Tom with the opportunity to escape and make his way with Mary, Bo-Peep, and other Mother Goose characters to Toyland. The opening scene and the last scene both of which two boys playing the piano is wonderful. but "Toyland" is different.
