Movie Info

Anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and physical and verbal assaults against Jews are on the rise throughout Europe, particularly in France. In response to rising tensions and fears, many in the Jewish community decide to leave. Others, like lawyer Julien, remain behind to fight back against those who would fan the flames of hate, like popular comedian Dieudonné, known for his signature inverted Nazi salute. Director Laura Fairrie presents an urgent, alarming look at the impact of this free reign of hatred on the lives of ordinary people.

Critic Reviews for Spiral

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

The anecdotal, multi-narrative approach is useful in personalizing the phenomenon, but the movie still brought me up short.

"Spiral" proves a largely underwhelming look at an overwhelming problem.

"Spiral" is best in smaller-bore moments, showing how everyday lives are affected by prejudice.

"Spiral" is an informative documentary, but I wish it were a more meticulously crafted one.

Fairrie's unfocused examination of anti-Semitism illuminates little.

It's nice to know there are filmmakers willing to turn genres upside down to get something more interesting than the standard storyline. Spiral succeeds because it is different.
