  • What is it like to grow up as the son of a senior Nazi, with atrocities on your family conscience? In this powerful documentary, the British lawyer Philippe Sands meets two men living in the shadow of the Third Reich in very different ways.

  • It entirely upends what I confess were my own preconceptions about what such a film would be: that is, a placid, consensual study, ruefully brooding on the sins of the fathers. This is far more challenging - and more disturbing.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Essential documentary viewing.

    November 18, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Wchter is] a frightening example of how the denial common to fascist regimes can endure long afterward.

    November 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • What Our Fathers Did is a movie about historical and filial responsibility, about repudiation, about acceptance, about the pain we inherit, and the pain that continues to be doled out.

    November 12, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is not just about a very specific and difficult conversation. Ultimately, it is also about the failure of conversation itself.
