Critic Reviews for An Ordinary Execution

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • Always mesmerising, Dussollier's Stalin is a portrait of a leader whose frailties are matched only by his capacity for evil.

  • It is permeated with a gut-wrenching reality about a historical period that's insufficiently understood and in present-day Russia viewed through rose-tinted glasses.

    November 29, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Imposing, yet slightly academic.

    November 29, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • At times overcomplicated with needless plot additives, but with no previous filmmaking experience Dugain has produced a taut and thoroughly enjoyable historical drama.

    November 29, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Dramatically speaking it's a bit too flat and seems more suited to theatre...

    December 13, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • With a thoughtful and introspective tone, this film continually surprises us as its story unfurls and a young doctor's life takes a strange and portentous turn, colliding with one of history's most notorious figures.
