Critic Reviews for The Ninth Day (Der neunte Tag)
It's no wonder Schlöndorff favors close-ups; with Mattes on screen, The Ninth Day gets right to its emotional core.
The Ninth Day is far from perfect, but is still thought-provoking and intriguing, a film that can begin its own kind of debate.
Schlondorff draws a telling picture of the ravished moral landscape that kept the wheels of the Holocaust turning.
Audience Reviews for The Ninth Day (Der neunte Tag)
A fabulous build up to a day when a priest must decide whether or not to be a collaborator for the Nazi regime or to go to death by opposing it. The tension builds towards the eventful day and the choice is not foreshadowed.
Gripping story about priests, concentration camps, and the quandry of Pious XII during world war II. Very well done.
