Critic Reviews for Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (9)

This intelligent biopic is kept aloft by Josef Hader's sensitive performance as the kind, gentlemanly Zweig.

July 20, 2017 | Full Review…

A movie that allows its actors to fully inhabit their characters in a potent but low-key way.

June 15, 2017 | Full Review…

As Zweig, Hader never offers a note of regret or terror. Instead, his performance is mannered and steadfast, evoking a man who trusts that humanity will survive fascism.

June 8, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A rare example of a biopic that gives the sense of a life lived while also bucking some of the genre's more stifling trends.

May 12, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This slender yet dense biopic deserves praise for how it reanimates the author, not what it inevitably leaves out; it's so difficult to capture and condense the past in all its flickering iridescence as Zweig once did.

May 12, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

One need not admire Zweig's writing to recognize the worth of this thoughtful treatment of one of the countless real-life tragedies of 20th-century history.
