Mainly notable for its inappropriate, blithe sentimentality. In another film this would be the usual Hollywood hokum. In a film about the most serious subject imaginable, it amounts to moral idiocy.

The worst Holocaust movie ever.

he story loses its grip and momentum during the laboriously realized denouement, which follows the hired help's struggle to escape to Switzerland amid overwrought action sequences propelled by a shrieking violin-driven soundtrack.

The whole thing is coarse and vulgar, as it hides its low fascinations behind a scrim of Holocaust piety until it becomes pure kitsch.

A handsome Holocaust melodrama hobbled by a transparent and cartoonish script.

Pure sentimental melodrama, with not a moment's reflection on any issue larger than the fate of our heroes.

The most mawkish and shallow take on the holocaust committed to screen in many a long year.

A case study in why Holocaust movies are so difficult to get right.

Its intentions are doubtless good, but it ends up exploiting the Holocaust for cheap suspense.

It's a sucrose period piece that somehow averts its gaze from the brutal reality of Nazi genocide, and manages to conjure a fatuous feelgood happy ending.

Is over-arching sincerity only results in a stiffness that gives way to B-movie melodramatics in time for the cliché-ridden finale.

Despite some tense scenes, this movie still falls fairly flat.

Put-upon Jews weep on cue or stare defiantly into the camera, spouting impromptu speeches about getting some of their own back one day; all the while, violins wail in the background.

The Aryan Couple gets great mileage out of its tension and suspense, and its commitment to developing its characters as real people in an unthinkable dilemma.
