With any serious, well-made drama about the horrors of the Holocaust comes the impulse...to value its worthiness over its qualities as entertainment...In Darkness is gritty, gruelling stuff...But it is a long, slow-moving story.
the lengthy sequences in the dark sewers certainly convey the monotonousness of the survivors' ordeal, but they come at the expense of narrative flow, weighing down the film in ways that are not necessarily productive.
This is straightforward storytelling at its best. The terror they feel is your terror, the stench is real, as is the antipathy you feel towards the hidden, much like the antipathy they feel toward one another.
