Jakob The Liar (1999)

Region code 1 (USA)

In Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II, poor Jewish cafe owner Jakob Heym (Oscar-winner Robin Williams) accidentally overhears a forbidden radio news bulletin signaling Soviet military success against German . To combat the overwhelming depression and suicide that pervades the ghetto, Jakob invents fictitious news bulletins about Allied advances against the Nazis. These lies keep hope and humor alive among the ghetto inhabitants - spirits are lifted, hearts are refreshed, and optimism is reborn. The Germans learn of the mythical radio and begin a search for the hero who dares operate it.
