Critic Reviews for Dead Europe

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (8)

  • Macabre, spiteful and all too bleak in its juxtaposition of generations and their transference of guilt.

    December 13, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Tony Krawitz pulls off several unsettling moodshifts, and takes extremely seriously the old-world traditions and superstitions a gorefest like Hostel could only sneer and snigger at.

  • A promising drama of alienation that slides into portentousness.

    December 13, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Although it may lack a raw, confident force to make it truly special, 'Dead Europe' completely nails its devastating, unexpected ending.

    December 11, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • In the end mood is all, and it's a bummer.

    November 16, 2012 | Full Review…
  • The film might have felt truer to its source if it were either pulpier or more avant-garde.

Audience Reviews for Dead Europe

  • Aug 19, 2012
    My last film for MIFF was definitly one of the more interesting ones. Adapted from Christos Tsiolkas's novel, It follows Issac (Ewan Leslie) an Australian son of Greek Parents, works as a skilled photographer and has his own gallery. While he's planning to visit Greece himself this conflicts with his family's dark past. what follows is Issac's journey to discovery what they've been hiding and the meaning of a mysterious curse thats been linked to the death of his late father. I do have some problems when it comes to undertanding the themes of Tsiolkas' fictional story, thus in the film's plot I failed to emotionally connect yet sympathise with many of the film's major characters. I have no criticisms however to Tony Krawitz's Direction and the cinematography of the film; making a very pretty cultural portrait of Greece and other countries. I also have no criticisms to the acting, it was well casted and supurbly acted. Kodi Smit-McPhee's character was probably the only one who you could sympathise with because of how well his character was written and acted. overall I thought Dead Europe was very good, but I can't say I really liked it.
