It fails to find a way of capturing the fine moral discriminations inherent to Levi's prose.

Bears witness to the courage, patience, and resiliency of Holocaust survivors. It is another chapter in the film recreation of the nightmare of World War II.

Turturro's toned-down performance is contrasted with the vivacious presentation by the large ensemble, allowing us to watch the hero's transformation from a near-zombie to a life-affirming human being.

What makes Primo Levi so special is not apparent in Rosi's film, because Levi never comes alive for us.
