  • The film has a personal tone that is not always detectable in his other movies. It enhances a film that's one of the most thoughtful in Schroeder's body of work.

    July 21, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An affecting rumination on the moral weight of personal choices.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Alas, Mr. Schroeder ... has tethered both his actress and this natural glory to an awkward, unpersuasive story, largely set in the early 1990s, that coalesces around the lingering effects of World War II on the German soul.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This two-hander is light on plot, but the emotional baggage its leads carry is anything but.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • [The] script ... saddles the cast with blunt dialogue, laying out ideas at the expense of credibly evasive and self-protective human behavior (to say nothing of realistic conversational rhythms).

  • The thorny subject of German historical memory binds the characters in Barbet Schroeder's Amnesia, a thoughtful, sensitive character study that reps a minor-key comeback for the veteran Swiss filmmaker.
