Critic Reviews for Alone in Berlin

All Critics (54) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (31) | Rotten (23)

  • Naturally Gleeson and Thompson portray their working-class German characters as sober, sexless, and socially conservative.

    April 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Visually, it's tedious, comprising staid, greyish greens. What's weirder is that the film is in English (though the accents are German), a distancing device that distracts.

    July 2, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Alone in Berlin is hampered by stodgy pacing, budgetary constraints, and drab interiors.

    June 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Thompson and Gleeson are a class act, in a relationship so stale and stiff they cannot even hug during their grief, and the chance to take positive action, however dangerous, begins to bring them back to life.

    June 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The two lead actors give their finest. And Daniel Brhl makes it three, slipping in a telling cameo as a conflicted police investigator, keen to show mercy but coerced by his "betters" to show none.

    June 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Gleeson, Thompson and Brhl give strong performances and this is a well-carpentered film.

  • Alone in Berlin serves as a much-needed reminder of how small acts of defiance have meaning and weight in the face of a soul-crushing force in power.

    May 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What Vincent Perez's plodding, predictable, utterly perfunctory WWII drama fails to recognise is that it doesn't even have a particularly good story on its hands.
