Seems like such an obvious topic for a film that it's surprising no one else has made it before..Raises issues that never get old. Nor should we stop talking about them.

A film whose core is a haunting question: When parents are monstrous, where does filial love begin and end?

"Hitler's Children" is an original study of the Holocaust and is also a cautionary statement of the dangers of the rise of a new fascism.

Zeevi not only has found himself five incredible subjects, but he's woven his film together so that their experiences and opinions are studies in contrasts and commonalities.

The sins of the fathers have seldom weighed so heavy as in the odd, intriguing and ultimately moving Hitler's Children.

As fascinating as it is provocative about aspects of evil, guilt, denial, heredity and repentance, this Israeli/German co-production offers much to think about.

Quiet, simple and soaked in sorrow, "Hitler's Children" takes a stripped-down approach to an emotionally sophisticated subject.

How these men and women have chosen to face this inherited burden directly or flee from it creates a fascinating spectrum the film explores via quietly intimate interviews.

Hitler's Children explores the themes of guilt, memory, family ties and identity with a profound simplicity that quickly gets very raw, at times overwhelmingly so.

The moral weight of "Hitler's Children" is unmistakable. So is that weight's inertness.

It's always dispiriting to see an ideal subject given shallow treatment, and one spends most of this documentary wishing a more experienced director had made it.

The film drains its subjects of the shame forced on them by Nazi ancestors and yet has difficulty arriving at an effective, constructive thesis.
