Critic Reviews for Divided We Fall
As with the films of Emir Kusturica, whose characters also resist easy analysis, the people in Divided We Fall are completely and wonderfully human.
Divided We Fall is quintessentially Czech, and it knows no borders.
Has the literary richness, depth of character and tone that such a morally difficult, powerful narrative requires.
A lovely movie, one that allows its characters unexpected spurts of growth and regression, darkness and grace.
A rewarding, courageous and beautiful work.
Audience Reviews for Divided We Fall
Just when I thought I had enough of films inspired by the events of World War II, Divided We Fall comes with a fresh direction that left me in total awe. Brilliant rapport of comedy and severity, tense and grace infused with elaborate cinematic styles. A story of conscience, courage, compromise, and survival. Refined writing and direction! Euphoric.
It takes a lot for a movie to rehash the whole hiding a Jew and suffering the wrath of the Germans theme....in that sense, this movie is unique. There is a subtle comical flair to the whole movie, with the background score never displaying any tension. The character sketches are well developed and the story...a little light-hearted for the most part. However, I cannot say that it meets, or surpasses, the standards expected out of a Nazi themed movie.
(** 1/2): Thumbs Down A good cast and interesting story but I felt the humor and direction at times just didn't work well. A near-miss.
