Critic Reviews for The Zookeeper's Wife
The movie is nicely shot and sympathetically acted, but there's an odd lack of stakes and urgency ...
A fundamental sense of empathy may not be especially cinematic, but that's no reason to ignore it (and Chastain, who strikes a wonderful balance with Heldenbergh, is masterful at expressing stoicism without ever tipping into sanctimony).
As refreshing as it is to see a woman in an Oskar Schindler-type role get her big-movie due, the trappings of handsome blandness, tinny storytelling, and thumbnail-sketch war terror prove too much for this story of a beauty fighting beastliness.
The movie's central figures and their experiences have been cleansed of complexity, embalmed in a sort of hagiographic glaze that makes even the pain look pretty.
Caro's movie fails to muster even a fraction of the suspense such life-and-death material naturally demands.
