Wonder if Roger Ebert saw the movie. If he did, he must be a trivial, awkward, diminished man. Perhaps the Chicago Sun-Times should think about replacing him. Time to go Roger.

I literally just finished reading \"Sarah's Key\" and am anxious to see the film!! The book was so sad and beautiful at the same time it brought me to tears... I have read many of the horrors that occured during the Holocaust but to read of the unjust killing of so may children makes my heart break for everyone who suffered during that time.

Working in a classical style and genre that rep a far cry from his previous work ("Pretty Things," "Gomez and Tavares, "UV"), Pacquet-Brenner's direction is always respectful if never entirely subtle. Full Review

Sarah's Key becomes a musing ("meditation" would be too generous) on the importance of uncovering the past that fails to honestly contemplate why such an act is significant. Full Review

Excellent performances make the movie effective. Yet the flashbacks have a depth and resonance largely absent from the modern scenes. Full Review

Sarah's need to save her brother provides the initial raison d'être, but with the mystery is resolved early on Sarah's Key turns into a flimsy meditation on grief. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Ms. Scott Thomas is as intelligent and attractive as ever, but the synthetic world her character inhabits can't compete with a harrowing past that depicts French complicity in Nazi atrocities. Full Review
