Critic Reviews for Nicky's Family

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13)

Nicholas Winton is a figure who deserves a worthy documentary in his name; unfortunately, Matej Minac's Nicky's Family only gets about halfway there.

In addition to the force and the officialdom, dizzying and stark, there are particularly sharp stabs of feeling.

The unfathomable tragedy of the Holocaust is beyond the scope of "Nicky's Family," and even as the credits roll, Winton's simple decency is as mysterious as ever.

An enthralling documentary by Matej Minac...

July 18, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What's nettlesome about director Matej Minac's clunkily constructed documentary is what it says about our perverse but understandable need to spin some kind of happy ending onto the Holocaust.

Hokey reenactments of the war years do the film no favors, but it's worth sticking them out to witness a humanity that never could be faked.
