      Jason Bailey New York Times Vivid, involving and frequently terrifying. Mar 1, 2019 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Reminds us how hard it is to say something new on this subject, to avoid third act melodrama, even when the tale is essentially true. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 24, 2019 Full Review Renee Schonfeld Common Sense Media Harrowing concentration camp tale lauds bravery and resolve. Rated: 4/5 Apr 16, 2019 Full Review Víctor López G. Espinof [A]n enviable narrative solvency and a considerable number of virtues present both in form and substance. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 5, 2019 Full Review Tess Cagle The Daily Dot The film is a heart-wrenching love letter to photography and its power of upholding the truth in a confusing world. Rated: 4/5 Feb 25, 2019 Full Review Alberto Bermejo El Mundo (Spain) Certain narrative impotence despite the innumerable references to a handful of memorable titles.

      Audience Member This foreign movie was really good. Mario Casas, Alain Hernandez, Richard van Weyden, and the rest of the cast did a great job in this movie. This true story about a photographer who planned to steal photo negatives to prove to the world of the atrocities the Nazis caused was dramatic, thrilling, and intense. It's about having the courage to do something risky, but for the right reasons. If you're a Netflix member, you should watch this movie sometime. It's worth it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member If you take away a couple of scenes near the end the movie it isn't worth much. People that actually lived there though not one of the worst camps they made cause it was a labour camp not a kill camp they were still tortured and killed and starved them. Mental and psychical pain must have been unbearable and the missed that part completely. One scene can't make up for the whole movie. It doesn't reflect the truth people lived and they turned it into a light version of reality Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Late R Despite an interesting story and a couple of effective moments, ‘The Photographer of Mauthausen' lacks the emotional impact you'd expect. It's has neither the tension and nor poignancy it needed to pull off its story which comes off as a little heavy-handed and shallow. In the film's defence, war films – in particular films revolving around the atrocities of concentration camps – are not remotely easy to pull off. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/03/22 Full Review Audience Member This movie is shocking, actors generate a lot of credibility for that reason the viewer can feel the despair, pain and sadness expressed by the characters. The scenes are perfectly set in such a way that you transport yourself to the concentration camps. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member "The Photographer Of Mauthausen" is an absolutely amazing film showcasing the horrors suffered by political prisoners in the concentration camps of WWII. A piece of Spanish history so easily overshadowed by other events that occurred throughout the war; here we get a fairly accurate portrayal of the life of Francisco Boix who is brilliantly portrayed by Mario Casas, his time at the Mauthausen Concentration Camp and the vital role he played in bringing photographic evidence that led to the conviction of several prominent Nazi party leaders. With only her second feature-length film at the helm, Mar Targarona's brilliance is on full display as she comes off as a seasoned director. I look forward to seeing more of her work over the coming years. The cinematography in this film is absolutely incredible, the performances from everyone involved were remarkable. For any history buff, any lover of film, this is an absolute must-see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Demonstrates how the decision to declare groups of people as subhuman is always arbitrary (Nazi-to-prisoner and prisoner-to-prisoner alike). A solid production, and even better that the protagonist was a real person. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
