Almost Peaceful Reviews

Christopher Null

a movie that stuffy film critics rate highly out of a sense of guilt and fear, but which never connect with real audiences, desperately waiting for something to happen

The combination of happy plot resolutions, spring-like classical music and beautiful scenery put a pleasant cap on a very humane, moving film.

There isn't much of a narrative arc in director Michel Deville's drama, just many touching little stories.

The plotting in this 2002 French drama really isn't any more deep than your typical soap opera.

Generosity and love of life are the film's hallmarks. Like the work of an expert tailor, it's done with unobtrusive skill, essential warmth and seamless grace.

There's something rather lovely about the mood and intentions of Michel Deville's French movie.

You become aware of how few movies about survivors of the Holocaust show them going about their lives, as opposed to acting out someone's idea of a Holocaust Survivor.

This is a film of half-notes and nuances, and as a chronicle of emotional survival it is infinitely inspiring.

A loving, moving portrait of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust attempting to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives in Paris.

Deville is an experienced director, and he composes this picture very neatly.

A mature and subtle film about how a community rebuilds itself after tragedy and disaster.

Handsomely shot but almost bewilderingly bland.

The characters in Almost Peaceful are pulled between a longing for what is lost and a fierce desire to live. Deville's plangent sympathy for them keeps the sentimentality honest.

Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal International

As an ensemble piece offering harsh themes rendered easily digestible by spoonfuls of sweetness and compassion, Almost Peaceful is too mild and treacly to enhance Deville's reputation with American audiences.

Michel Deville's heartfelt and sexy film feels stagy at moments, but the characters are so affectionately drawn and the cast is so watchable, it couldn't matter less.

It may appear to be the ultimate non-action movie, but in the context of these lives, it is the highest kind of drama.

Deville gently reveals that they're all simultaneously hauntingly fragile and amazingly resilient, their smiles as piercing as any resigned gaze.
