It's a classic tale, told by director Giulio Ricciarelli with a fine eye for period detail and a welcome air of restraint.
Fehling does a fine job as Radmann, who also carries a heavy weight, as a cypher for all the Germans who did not want to know what their fathers did in the war.
An emotionally affecting and illuminating piece that is beautiful as well as edifying.
What should have been a fairly direct look at a culture hiding from itself becomes an overdone, angst-everywhere exercise.
The movie reveals so many secrets and twists that it threatens to dilute its message. When a visit to Auschwitz becomes little more than an appreciation of a pretty meadow, the script flirts with banality.
Formulaic and uninspired ...
Deftly navigates a bureaucratic maze [in which] a younger generation hasn't even heard of Auschwitz and an older generation wants to forget it.
Giulio Ricciarelli's engaging historical drama...can be seen as a prequel to Hannah Arendt.
It's an undoubtedly fascinating topic, but is diluted somewhat by the polished direction and unfocused narrative.
The film, while commercially accessible and moderately interesting, is unfortunately perfectly forgettable.
This post-Holocaust drama, while admittedly quite engrossing to watch, can't avoid coming across as overly streamlined to offer easy catharsis for a mainstream audience.
An eye-opening story about the importance of seeking the truth.
It has the bland and uninspired aesthetics of a film made for television but at least understands well the complexity of its subject matter despite some typical clichés of TV movies, like the protagonist giving in to alcohol abuse and his incomprehensible decision in the third act.
Too soapy, unfocused & formulaic.
