Boat Is Full, The
The Boat Is Full is a 1981 Austro-German-Swiss movie directed by Markus Imhoof. In 1942, a group of refugees manages to get from Germany to Switzerland, which has already closed its borders. They happen to clash in the emergency situation: the Jewish siblings Judith and Olaf, the old Viennese Ostrowskij with his granddaughter, a French orphan boy, and a German deserter. The landlady Anna takes in the refugees, and after an initial mistrust, her husband Franz also takes care of them. For the most part, the villagers treat the foreign "freeloaders" with ignorance or even hateful rejection. Since the Swiss authorities do not recognize asylum "only on racial grounds," the homeless are finally arrested and taken to an internment camp.
The Boat Is Full was nominated for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film in 1982 and won numerous other awards.
