Critic Reviews for All My Loved Ones
A tone of rueful compassion ... reverberates throughout this film, whose meaning and impact is sadly heightened by current world events.
The movie is loaded with good intentions, but in his zeal to squeeze the action and our emotions into the all-too-familiar dramatic arc of the Holocaust escape story, Minac drains his movie of all individuality.
Schindler's List it ain't.
As banal as the telling may be -- and at times, All My Loved Ones more than flirts with kitsch -- the tale commands attention.
Sensitive ensemble performances and good period reconstruction add up to a moving tragedy with some buoyant human moments.
Audience Reviews for All My Loved Ones
"Vichni moji blízcí" is a historical drama about the separation of Jewish families from their children during the advent of Nazi Germany occupation of Czechoslovakia. Too bad it lacks emotional depth.
What strikes me about Holocaust films is that it's impossible to become numb to the subject after hundreds of views. Presents yet another family's struggle during WWII in contrast with their prior good fortune.
Brilliant like many other movies about the holocaust. I thought it was very touching. Really good story, especially because it is real.
