If they gave an Oscar for best ensemble acting, and I think they should, The Grey Zone would get my vote.

This is a masterpiece and yet another chapter of the dark period called: "The Holocaust."
January 2, 2009
So many incredibly raw, wrenching--and, crucially, unsparingly unsentimental--scenes and moments that it's impossible to not be haunted by the film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

It unsuccessfully tries to bridge the gap between pathos and establishing a sense of realism, coming across as forced. Overweight prisoners and Harvey Keitel's German accent distract from the mood of the film.

Filme trágico, complexo, difícil - e que pode ser assistido em sessão dupla com O Pianista.
| Original Score: 5/5
June 19, 2003
They are dark, thoroughly uncompromising works of a filmmaker completely fearless to take an audience into dank recesses of the human condition.

Roman Polanski's The Pianist may have been showered with Oscar glory ... but the best Holocaust film of 2002 was actually The Grey Zone.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
April 26, 2003
Unlike Schindler's List, ... this uses history to remind us of the tenuousness of our own morality, to remind us that ... most of us will never have to know what we might be capable of in certain circumstances.
April 21, 2003
The effort is sincere and the results are honest, but the film is so bleak that it's hardly watchable.

Hauntingly unforgettable.
December 27, 2002
An intelligent and deeply felt work about impossible, irrevocable choices and the price of making them.

It's hard to imagine anybody ever being "in the mood" to view a movie as harrowing and painful as The Grey Zone, but it's equally hard to imagine anybody being able to tear their eyes away from the screen once it's started.
November 19, 2002
Brings light to a little-known facet of the Holocaust in a way that does justice to its moral ambiguities.

If this story must be told and retold -- and indeed it must -- then The Grey Zone is to be lauded for finding a new and ingenious angle.

November 18, 2002
If stars could be awarded on the basis of good intentions, The Grey Zone should be king of the galaxy. Unfortunately, it lands on earth with something of a thud.

November 18, 2002
Effectively feeds our senses with the chilling sights and sounds from within the camp to create a completely numbing experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Even in its darkest moments, a heartening defiance underlies gut-wrenching calamity.

As bold and unyielding as The Grey Zone stands with its historical subtext, there are a few factors detracting from the powerful message.

The Grey Zone is powerful, mesmerizing and disturbing.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
November 8, 2002
An uncomfortable movie, suffocating and sometimes almost senseless, The Grey Zone does have a center, though a morbid one.
