Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Honesty is the movie's greatest strength.
Fresh: One might think that years and years of seeing Holocaust movies would create an immunity, a point at which you can feel no more. But in fact, it works the other way.
Fresh: The film looks fine, is structured intelligently, measures out the horror in pragmatic amounts. In the end, though, it's that professionalism that gets in the way.
Fresh: An epic, and no less of one for taking place largely in the claustrophobic confines of a Polish sewer system.
This poignant film is a powerful dramatization of history as bludgeon. Agnieszka Holland is a genius.
Actually I never did get to see this film which I paid for. I was traveling and could never get access and then received a message that my rental period had expired. Today When trying to report a problem I was repeatedly given a ' cannot access iTunes store' message. So therefore a 'review'.
Will I get any response?
This is an inspiring story. The little girl in the sewer grew up to write a book "The Girl In The Green Sweater". Wow!
