Movie Info

In October 1942, Esther Stermer, the matriarch of a Jewish family in the Ukraine, leads her family underground to hide from the pursuing Nazis - and stays nearly a year and a half. Their harrowing story of survival living in near total darkness in two cold, damp caves is one like no other ever told. It was NO PLACE ON EARTH. (c) Magnolia

Critic Reviews for No Place On Earth

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (15)

"No Place on Earth" is at its most moving when showing us, in close-up, the still-haunted faces of the cave dwellers, many of whom tell their stories to director Janet Tobias' camera.

The film is not without its flaws, but the story it tells is both terrifying and inspiring.

The producer's hand is heavy in No Place on Earth, but it ultimately can't sink the inspiring tale of endurance.

The movie is engaging but appallingly superficial when it considers the larger history of the Holocaust.

Most ''Based on a True Story'' movies mean yawning, but this remarkable story of Jews living in an underground cave for over a year to avoid capture by the Germans is an incredible tale told by the survivors themselves...interesting.
