No larger aspect of what is in this film can be new to us; but seeing it in this old-friends perspective gives all of it, familiar and new, a novel effect.

Apr 9, 2002

What unfolds onscreen is remarkable: The passions and arguments of the past are resurrected in the present.

Feb 26, 2002 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Reminds us that different people react to madness -- in this case, the Holocaust -- in different ways.

Jan 24, 2002

Spending time with these guys is an invigorating treat.

Dec 6, 2001

Even if these guys hadn't each gone through so much strife and real tragedy in their life, they're just interesting right now to see them going back and forth.

Nov 27, 2001

Less a document of wartime experience than of the mentality one needs to maintain in order to be a fighter, and the danger of attacking, however benignly, cherished beliefs.
