Critic Reviews for Bye Bye Germany

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (2)

  • "Bye Bye Germany," a refreshingly original, unpredictable tale about Jews trying to scam their way out of postwar Europe, is part caper, part Holocaust drama, part buddy movie, part romance, and part melancholic comedy.

    May 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Though the film might ultimately be a little too neat, that shortcoming is made up for by the core performances.

    April 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Not your typical Holocaust-inspired drama.

    April 12, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Decent performances and good intentions can't compensate for a sense of airlessness, reinforced by the kind of ersatz period detailing that makes this costume drama feel so very costume-y.

    October 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A sly, smart, funny and still touching peek into that horrid past, a Holocaust dramedy with pathos and a reminder that "L'chaim, to life" is the best way to remember it

    April 6, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The year: 1946. The place: U.S. Displaced Persons Camp, Frankfurt, Germany. The genre: Comedy. Really, and it's enjoyable and rich with ironic humor and dark undertones.
