Critic Reviews for Al Borde de la Muerte
...remains an almost painfully dull piece of work throughout most of its interminable running time...
No excerpt available.
...while the direction is sometimes lax, the movie is not without its tensions, especially in the final thirty minutes. It has its rewards.
Audience Reviews for Al Borde de la Muerte
Haley Joel Osment shines in this film. All the kid actors in this film are really good. Even Willem Dafoe does a great job playing the priest. The film reminded me of the movie, I Am David. I thought that film was much better than this one. I am surprised that the film didn't get a theatrical release. One problem that I had with the film was that I thought a lot of the adult actors were miscast. That was a bit distracting to me. Also the scenes of violence involving children were shocking. It reminded me of scenes that I would see in Lord of the Flies. There is one shocking scene in this film that reminded me of a famous scene in the film Hounddog starring Dakota Fanning. I know it is to show the horror during that time period, but I thought that the way it was handled here, wasn't done correctly. I do recommend the film especially for the performances of Haley, Willem, and the children in the movie.
An excellent little movie. Inevitably a sad movie yet containing much that is inspiring and some that is funny. The acting is all very good, especially by the child actors. Even those in some small roles do a fine job. Haley Joel Osment is, as usual, outstanding but a young British actor named Liam Hess outshines even Osment's performance.
Awesome Film that will stay with you forever.A fresh look at WWII & the Holocaust Struggle that you haven't seen before, from the perspective of an 11year old boy that is sent away, yet still profoundly affected.
