  • A subtly rich performance by Dillane and a fine supporting cast make this Holocaust drama worth seeing, even if you don't think you can bear another one. show more

  • The romanticized image of the tortured artist - never mind how warranted his or her angst might be - is the stuff of stereotype unless it's leavened with humor, or limned in art. In Fugitive Pieces, neither element appears in sufficient quantity. show more

  • Though much of the film's power is tamped down by the passive storytelling style, Dillane's performance as the adult Jakob is compelling, and Ayelet Zurer is beguiling as Jakob's late-in-life soul mate. show more

    This is a magnificent film, from an incredible screen play/novel, amazingly directed with scenes & human touching emotion and kindness w/lessons to learn through life so moving I am thrilled to know it will stay with me for days. I do not understand why it is not getting early acclaim as it a blockbuster of indefinable purportions. Yup, .. - ya gotta go see it, - you'll be a better person for it. 10 STARS. This will receive many many Oscar nominations.
