Critic Reviews for Past Life

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (6)

  • The drama seems overwrought at times, even cliché ...

    July 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • While so many films have examined the war and the Holocaust that took such an egregious toll on the Jewish community, Past Life looks at it from a novel perspective, examining the possible "crimes" committed by a survivor.

    July 13, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Rieger and Tagar capture the intimacy and competitive sniping of siblings, and they're each stunning in opposite roles.

    June 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • To Nesher's credit, "Past Life" never feels exploitative - a chief danger in mining the Holocaust for drama. But it also never fully coheres.

    June 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Nesher has adapted a real-life memoir - Baruch Milch's "Can Heaven Be Void?" - into an overly contrived dramatic scenario. It's also something of a tease.

    June 15, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Overstuffed and occasionally overwrought, the film is engrossing nonetheless, with a satisfying pace as Nesher juggles the numerous narrative elements.
