Interweaving multiple perspectives and three generations of family memories, Yael Reuveny's "Farewell Herr Schwarz" traces a Holocaust mystery with stumbling curiosity and endearing sincerity.
This fascinating autobiographical documentary explores the world of Holocaust survivors and their descendants with an unusual story.
An absorbing documentary that eloquently explores questions about forgiveness.
Farewell Herr Schwarz ends with tentative bonds of conciliation and family renewal, but the film offers no false answers to the terrible conundrum of remembering and forgetting catastrophe.
Reuveny's film unfolds with the amorphousness of memory, her family's story told in a way so personal that it feels more like a private genealogy project than a doc fit for the public.
Farewell, Herr Schwarz is of a kind with 2011's excellent The Flat...
A suspenseful, surprising and intriguing emotional journey.
Farewell, Herr Schwarz examines the psychological impact of the shocking news for all three generations through a series of simple conversations with Reuveny.
The sobering quality that informs both the documentary's aesthetic and content largely suppresses any spontaneity or much-needed moments of levity.
A bittersweet documentary detailing an attempt to reconcile a pair of siblings' polar opposite approaches to surviving the Holocaust.
A complex consideration of what it is to be Jewish and the lengthy aftereffects of atrocities perpetuated on one's past generations, 'Farewell, Herr Schwarz' is an important addition to Holocaust cinema.
