  • If Asante's idea is that Nazi ideology poisoned bright young minds into viewing their fellow citizens as less than human, the lovey-dovey bond she's pushing as the main event seems even more implausible.

  • The film gives us elements of melodrama and also of epic - yet there is also something a little uncomfortable about it.

  • In the end it feels like a school play, and not a very good one.

  • Where Hands Touch is a coming of age story, a saga of war, and a heart-rending love story about a forbidden romance that defied the odds against survival in a living hell.

  • A gut-wrenching misfire.
