Sunshine never gets more than an inch below the surface of the characters. Szabo keeps his stories smushed into compact little episodes, each designed to do little more than move everything forward.

'Sunshine' is a Cliff's Notes on the Lessons of Assimilation which even the pre-Bar Mitzvah set will find unconvincing.

As a historical document the film is fascinating, examining the shifting political tides in Eastern Europe. But as a movie, it's oddly uninvolving ... and a bit forced.

There are beautiful pictures aplenty in Sunshine, some of them horrific, but in the end Szabó and co-screenwriter Israel Horovitz leave us with platitudes as syrupy as the family cure-all.

This is a movie of substance and thrilling historical sweep, and its three hours allow Szabo to show the family's destiny forming and shifting under pressure.
