Critic Reviews for Hitler's Children
A film whose core is a haunting question: When parents are monstrous, where does filial love begin and end?
The moral weight of "Hitler's Children" is unmistakable. So is that weight's inertness.
The sins of the fathers have seldom weighed so heavy as in the odd, intriguing and ultimately moving Hitler's Children.
Haunting documentary about the descendants of top Nazi leaders struggling to endure their horrific legacy.
Quiet, simple and soaked in sorrow, "Hitler's Children" takes a stripped-down approach to an emotionally sophisticated subject.
Audience Reviews for Hitler's Children
A compelling look at the sense of blood-guilt shared by the descendants of some of the most notorious Nazi monsters. I found it thoughtful, disgusting and moving.
A striking, and important, documentary revealing the burden that must be faced when descended from Nazi war criminals..."Not every story has a happy ending." This is powerful stuff, and gets even more emotional the further into the film you get. No one ever forgets what happened, but some choose to forgive, while other choose to only remember.
A powerful, moving documentary concerning the descendants of some of Hitler's right-hand men and how they deal with their current-day lives despite their painful family history. An important, uniquely fascinating examination of how one deals with ancestors who were absolute monsters, and how one goes on knowing that may be in their blood. There is a moment that takes place at one of the Holocaust sites concerning a survivor and a descendant that is one of the most moving moments captured in a documentary. It's a very basic, simple approach on a complicated subject, and the result is a great film that should be viewed by anyone interested in this period in history.
