Stephen Dillane plays Jakob Beer, a man whose life is haunted by his childhood experiences during WWII. As a child in Poland he is orphaned during wartime then saved by a compassionate Greek archaeologist. Years later, having moved to Canada, the grown up Jakob has become a writer struggling to articulate his childhood horrors, haunted by the mystery of his sister's fate. But after his troubled emotions lead to the break-up of his marriage to the free-spirited Alex, played by Rosamund Pike, Jakob must exorcise the ghosts of his past if he is to close a traumatic chapter of his life and find beauty in the present.
Based on the beloved best-selling novel by award winning writer Anne Michaels, Fugitive Pieces is a touching testimony to the power of remembrance and redemption.

Moving - Fugitive Pieces review by NG

Spoiler Alert

I read the book many years ago and found the film to be very true to the poetic prose of the original author Anne michaels.

It is so moving to watch how hard it is to leave the past when the past is with us during every moment of out lives. A great tale of love of friends, family, lovers and of the inability to forget.

Very Interesting - Fugitive Pieces review by Cato

Spoiler Alert

A good film, with a plot which goes from evil to good, although the evil remains in the main character's life till the end, in that memory records your childhood more than everything else The film gets some middling reviews in some cases, especially for Stephen Dillane, who I think gives a very good performance, albeit quiet and reflective.
