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.
[Wächter is] a frightening example of how the denial common to fascist regimes can endure long afterward.
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.
The film is not just about a very specific and difficult conversation. Ultimately, it is also about the failure of conversation itself.
What starts out as a genial documentary about two sons of high officials of the Nazi Party soon turns chilling in the gripping and compelling "What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy."
A troubling study of denial, wartime responsibility and the challenge of dealing with a monster in the family.
What Our Fathers Did is a documentary with real intellectual heft, but there are very personal stakes involved.
A fascinating doc about a couple sons of Nazi war criminals, one ashamed of his father's legacy, the other stubbornly proud.
A valuable examination of personal responsibility v familial loyalty set against events that should never be taken for granted.
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.
A horribly gripping film.
Essential documentary viewing.
