Movie Info

The juxtaposition of tourists who have come to visit the grounds of former Nazi extermination camps with the grave significance of these historic sites creates a sometimes mordant study of our current culture.

Critic Reviews for Austerlitz

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • Everyone is looking, looking, looking. Looking at what? Buildings, walls, yards, enclosures. The victims are not there. The war criminals are not there. The past is not there.

    November 21, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The present-day worth of preserved Holocaust death camps is tacitly addressed in Sergei Loznitsa's brilliant observational doc.

  • The film is relatively silent -- there is no added commentary, no titles, no extra sound -- capturing an emotional detachment that is hard to shake, all the more so because of its prevalence.

    February 5, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Exhibiting a simplicity and intellectual acuity that is far too rare in the field of documentary, Loznitsa has created a film whose cumulative impact will stay with you long after you watch it.

    November 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The film's visual and spatial incongruities impose tacit condemnation-a kind of guilt-by-participation determination-but, more plaintively, the contrasts allow for a sustained contemplation of the elegiac, of memorialization.

    October 10, 2017 | Full Review…
  • ...it is precisely the director's economy and calm before this loaded historical subject that makes Austerlitz all the more powerful.
