Critic Reviews for The Day Mountbatten Died
It was the contemporary interviews with the individuals who have lived longest with the consequences of that day that distinguished the film, elevating it from a historical account to something more relevant and resonant.
The story of both atrocities was carefully stitched together from every perspective: witnesses, rescuers, those who survived and the relatives of those who didn't, all in different ways were still scarred and bereaved.August 20, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
The film is a plea to remember, while skilfully telling the story of the day - and the context in which it took place - mainly through those who were there.August 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
Journalist Olivia O'Leary was eloquent, too, especially when observing that all of us on these two islands have the responsibility to ensure that conditions "do not encourage the breakout again of sectarian tensions".
To explain the historical context, compile the fragmented accounts of the survivors, assess the long-term damage and pay tribute to the dead required a delicate balance. As a result, the documentary sometimes felt piecemeal, but never superficial.August 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
