Can a Jew who knows his fate in a Nazi concentration camp escape death by being clever? By pretending to be a Persian, for example. This is the problem facing the hero of The Persian Lessons.

"In many ways, the film is reminiscent of the old British war films, which had the same ability to blend a comic plot with the story of conflict. Of course, Roberto Benigni's Life is Beautiful comes to mind, but The Persian Lessons does not forget the atrocities committed at that time either". Cineuropa
