Filming began Monday on the first movie to be co-produced by Poles and Israelis, a story set against the background of the Holocaust. British actor Joseph Fiennes, who starred in the Oscar-winning "Shakespeare in Love" and "Enemy at the Gates," leads an international cast in the story of a cellist's return to Poland 30 years after World War II. The trip forces her to recall the personal and historical turmoil she experienced as a young woman in the spring of 1941 after the Germans invaded Poland and started herding Jews into ghettos, producer Ewa Puszczynska said. Israel's Uri Barbash directs the tale based on stories by Ida Fink, a Holocaust survivor who moved to Israel from Poland in 1957, but continued to write in Polish. Poland's Opus Films and Israel's Traxis Films are co-producing the US$2.5 million budget project, Puszczynska said. Filming is slated to finish Sept. 18.
