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.

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.

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.

In this gently observed film about Holocaust survivors, survival means something other than choked laughter and sentimental bromides or brute, animal struggle.

Deville has managed to preserve the work's great virtues -- the intimacy, discretion, grace, and humor with which it speaks of both irredeemable disaster and the taste for life that survives it.

Without even realizing it, director Michel Deville's Almost Peaceful doesn't just capture the mundane climb back to the familiar, it emphasizes it.

An intimate tale of how a group of strangers scarred by the past and with heavy personal burdens attempts to break the years of mistrust and suspicions built up during the war years.
