  • A bankable cast, a hint of controversy and high production values may play in their favor commercially, but Bosch and her producer-husband Ilan Goldman have come dangerously close to making a feel-good movie about the Holocaust. show more

  • Sentimentality may make the movie's agony more digestible, but its darkness resists any glossing over of what isn't only France's, but Europe's painful legacy. show more

  • A big, sorrowful, dramatically trite period epic about a bleak chapter in the history of modern France. show more
