Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 02/18/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "The narrative, in the form of a docu-drama, is all the more gripping because of the restraint Wajda demonstrates."
New York Times - 02/18/2009
"[S]olemn and searing....With elegant concision, the film explores both the events leading up to the massacre and its aftermath..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/27/2009
"Wajda musters the power of classical filmmaking and personal emotional investment to dramatize a stunning atrocity long covered up..." -- Grade: A-
Total Film - 05/27/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "With its mournful score, muted cinematography and restrained performances, this is a work of sober commemoration..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/23/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film ends with a scene of relentless horror, showing the assembly line of execution....Wajda has brought some small measure of rest to their names, to Poland, and to history..."
Uncut - 11/02/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]echnically-brilliant filmmaking of a style that is rarely seen anymore -- dense in allusion and symbol, light on character."
