  • 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.
