Critic Reviews for Protektor

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (3)

  • Though it remains a little too enigmatic, Marek Najbrt's Holocaust drama is atmospheric enough to keep us edgy on its heroine's behalf.

    August 5, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Dipping in and out of luminous black and white, "Protektor" has a distancing glamour that prevents the story from digging in.

    August 4, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • Protektor is simply another in a long line of diluted stories about life during wartime, one whose diminished returns only further trivialize a legacy of real-life horror.

    August 3, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Najbrt gets the look and feel of noir fatalism down, but storytelling that alternates between roughshod and lethargic means the film doesn't hold together as much more than pretty fragments.

  • The movie is nothing if not tonally sellable, even if the digital sheen often seems at odds with the domesticity of the central story.

    August 1, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Ethically thorny and stylistically accomplished.

  • At last, a movie about the holocaust about ordinary human beings confronted with difficult choices. A superb script, terrific acting, and political relevance make this one of the more important movies of the year.
