A tone of rueful compassion ... reverberates throughout this film, whose meaning and impact is sadly heightened by current world events.
The movie is loaded with good intentions, but in his zeal to squeeze the action and our emotions into the all-too-familiar dramatic arc of the Holocaust escape story, Minac drains his movie of all individuality.
Schindler's List it ain't.
As banal as the telling may be -- and at times, All My Loved Ones more than flirts with kitsch -- the tale commands attention.
Sensitive ensemble performances and good period reconstruction add up to a moving tragedy with some buoyant human moments.
It offers a glimpse of the Solomonic decision facing Jewish parents in those turbulent times: to save their children and yet to lose them.
It's truly awful and heartbreaking subject matter, but one whose lessons are well worth revisiting as many times as possible.
There's a persistent theatrical sentiment and a woozy quality to the manner of the storytelling, which undercuts the devastatingly telling impact of utter loss personified in the film's simple title.
Jirí Hubac's script is a gem. His characters are engaging, intimate and the dialogue is realistic and greatly moving. The scope of the Silberstein family is large and we grow attached to their lives, full of strength, warmth and vitality..
The film is so packed with subplots involving the various Silbersteins that it feels more like the pilot episode of a TV series than a feature film.
