Critic Reviews for The Burning Wall

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (6)

  • A balanced, thorough and well-documented chronicle of how one Germany became two, then one again.

    Jan 23, 2004
  • As familiar as much of this history may be, to hear it recounted by those who lived it lends it a new emotional immediacy.

    Nov 20, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A frightening look at Communist-controlled East Germany.

    Nov 20, 2002 | Rating: 3/4
  • On the surface, Beller's film is an acute primer on mid-century socialist statism gone inevitably screwy, but beneath it, there's something to be gleaned about the psychology of German nationhood.

    Nov 19, 2002
  • ...not a frame of film is wasted in telling its story of lives tortured, drugged, humiliated, and terrorized by fascist, pro-communist ideology.

    Mar 9, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Beller's history of dissent in the German Democratic Republic is admirably concise and surprisingly thorough.
