Critic Reviews for Paradise (Ray)
Black-and-white cinematography and minimalist sound design contribute to the bleak, austere tone, which befits the theme of survival in a morally bankrupt world.
Konchalovskiy presents this grimly contemplative tale appropriately in black and white, drawing powerful performances from all three principals, especially Yuliya Vysotskaya as Olga.
"Paradise" and its predictable waltz of suffering, choked consciousness and monstrosity adds little to the problematic subset of camp-themed World War II movies, which feel like nostalgia for hell.
A strikingly shot Holocaust drama that ultimately seems confused about whose story it's telling or to what end.
... strong performances and outstanding cinematography aren't enough to rescue an unfocused and episodic screenplay, which will leave many stranded in a purgatorial cinematic-halfway house between bliss and despair.
