      Christy Lemire RogerEbert.com [T]his is such a worthwhile story that we can’t look away, and Nélisse is so engaging that we don’t want to. Rated: 3/4 Apr 19, 2024 Full Review Rex Reed Observer It’s a true if fantastic story, anchored by the powerful, heartfelt performances of Sophie Nélisse as an innocent girl whose integrity and resolve turns her into a woman of maturity and strength. Rated: 3.5/4 Apr 16, 2024 Full Review Drew Gregory Autostraddle I’m glad I now know about Irena Gut Opdyke — I just wish I’d read her Wikipedia page instead of sitting through this film. Sep 18, 2023 Full Review Tina Kakadelis Film Obsessive Despite relying on the far-too-familiar beats of a biopic, Irena’s Vow tells the gripping story of a woman who made small, brave decisions in order to do what she believed was right. May 7, 2024 Full Review Eric Marchen Rogers TV French-Canadian director Louise Archambault defuses some conventional elements through character work, never losing focus of the central figure. Rated: B Apr 20, 2024 Full Review Hannah Brown Jerusalem Post Irena’s Vow gives us a look into the life of the kind of person we all hope we would be if we found ourselves tested like this.

      Audience Member Dougray Scott is truly unrecognizable in this film. Superb job. He is the best parts of this film. The story is an amazing one but it was missing something for me. It wasn’t handled as seriously. I know this type of film has been done before and it is shot beautifully. We touch on a few recognizable beats. But in my opinion the suspense in the film was wasted a little bit for a more comedic tone. This film is too accessible for audiences . I know it sound weird and it makes sense if your not trying to make Schindler’s List. But the comedic tone worked better for me in Jojo Rabbit. This film suffers from this subject matter and its handling of it. It was a good attempt in trying to capture both but fell a little flat for me in some areas. I was so impressed with Dougray Scott's performance that I ignored this film's short comings. overall a good film. with a potential learning experience for the director. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/22/24 Full Review Elisha I This movie reminds of the movie Sophie was also in, The Book Thief.. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/18/24 Full Review Alice N This movie was so beautifully done! This story is phenomenal! 10/10!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review Jim E Excellent true story, very well told by a superb cast! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/07/24 Full Review Rose K The acting, costumes, atmosphere and environment were outstanding. Being based on a true story, makes the storyline more compelling and yet downplayed. My heart went out to the leading role and her resilience to help save others at her own risk of safety. A must see. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Daniel S Some stiff acting aside, emotions of disgust, anxiety and horror make this movie compelling. A must see.
