What to Know

Critics Consensus

While it lacks the spark of its subject's remarkable work, Charlotte offers a worthy introduction to a remarkable -- albeit tragic -- real-life story.

Tim Robey Daily Telegraph (UK) While the soft pastel backdrops are rather lovely, the film seems cocooned by design in its own prettiness, doing little to illustrate the encroaching darkness. Rated: 2/5 Dec 15, 2022 Full Review John Nugent Empire Magazine Though somewhat flawed and less artistically daring than it could be, Charlotte still makes for an emotional, humane viewing experience. Rated: 3/5 Dec 14, 2022 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Tahir Rana and Éric Warin make provocative storytelling choices, consistently accentuating the political darkness around Salomon with a festering sense of familial unease. Rated: 4/5 Dec 9, 2022 Full Review Amy Smith InSession Film This is a story that needed to be told, and I am glad I had the chance to discover who Charlotte Salomon was. However, she also deserved a better film than this. Rated: C- May 21, 2024 Full Review Trevor Johnston Radio Times It's certainly strong material, and many of Salomon's bold, expressionist artworks are recreated on screen. However, the rest of the film feels reined-in and too conventional by comparison. Mar 23, 2023 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Maven's Nest Uses animation effectively to tell the dramatic story of German-Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon (1927 – 1943) to appeal to a wide audience of adults. Script emphasizes the romantic and emotional inspirations in her life, more than other interpretations. Rated: 8/10 Jan 19, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
