The Zookeepers Wife (2017)

It has been a while since I saw this film but I wanted to sit down and make this post because that is what this film deserves. So here it finally is, the zookeeper’s wife.

What is this film about?
The zookeeper’s wife tells the account of the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the German invasion. The film is based on a true story and to make that makes it even more interesting.

What did I think?
I loved this film, it was a good film. I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful it was. The story was sad and happy. It starts with a very happy time when you get to know the characters and when you are all invested all these sad things happen.

You can feel what the characters are feeling, you feel scared at times for them. I loved the way they showed the love these people had for each other as well as the animals and how the zookeeper’s wife did everything to save everyone she cared about. This film has a very strong female lead which I found very enjoyable. Antonia was a caring loving individual and you see that in every part of the story.

It’s just difficult to express how amazing it was so I highly recommend this film. It’s an amazing story that I’m glad is shared. What I liked too is that she did everything she could to protect these people she didn’t know in fear of her own life and how she made sure that no one knew. It was incredible.


Overall a definite recommendation! A very strong film that I will probably watch again in the future. Have you seen this film, what do you think?


Lots of love,
