Like the Harmonists in their shows, this neatly assembled German production serves up a beguiling blend of humor, sentiment, and nostalgia.

... a grandly realized and skillfully executed melodrama that seems all too familiar.

The movie is history as kitsch, not quite on the Life is Beautiful level of manipulation, but clumsy.

This German film, based on the true story of this legendary vocal ensemble, shows how politics colors everything: no creative soul can ever be apolitical.

The story of the Comedian Harmonists, who brought to the waning days of Weimar a bubbly frivolity, is a rich one. Rich enough to keep you watching and wanting to know more.

The charismatic quality of the group, the performing magic that made them the big stars they were, is not convincingly demonstrated and that is a major weakness in the film.

If you're in the mood for good musical entertainment, but don't want to spend $100 at the theater, go see The Harmonists.
January 1, 2000
Performances aside, the movie is dull and perfunctory.

A very satisfying film that should delight intended audiences.
