Critic Reviews for Back to the Fatherland

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (5)

  • Several engaging main characters and warm cross-generational relationships can't quite offset patchy storytelling and uncertain aims in "Back to the Fatherland."

    June 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The idea is interesting but the implementation is uneven in "Back to the Fatherland," a documentary that looks at two generations of Israelis: one is hopeful, the other wary.

    June 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Back to the Fatherland is too shallow to do justice to its psychological quest.

    June 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This film tells the tale of grandparents and their grandchildren. Some who live in Israel and some who have moved to Germany or Austria in search of a better life.

    July 17, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • ...the question becomes not how can Israel and the younger generations of Jews move on from the trauma of the Holocaust, but is moving on even possible?

    July 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The complicated historical and cultural ideas that Back to the Fatherland tackles are worthy of a deep dive, but unfortunately, this film isn't it.
