      Cath Clarke Guardian The film gives us a precious glimpse into LGBTQ+ life in the postwar period. Rated: 3/5 Feb 7, 2023 Full Review Jude Dry indieWire Bolstered by gorgeous archival Super 8 footage of queer life in the 1950s, “Nelly & Nadine” offers a tender romance with a surprisingly vibrant slice of queer history. Rated: B+ Dec 19, 2022 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman TheWrap “Nelly & Nadine” isn’t just a war movie but also a touching family history, an unforgettable romance and, above all, a magnificent tribute to the power of persistence in art, life and love. Dec 15, 2022 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills This portrait of two highly accomplished women is gracefully crafted, offering a poignant glimpse not only of a hidden past but a reminder of just how many remarkable life stories get buried by time and circumstance. Jun 12, 2023 Full Review Ayelet Dekel Midnight East Nelly and Nadine’s story is a magnificent romance, as thrilling as any fiction, and all the more compelling in its truth. Omnia vincit amor. Apr 6, 2023 Full Review Alex Billington FirstShowing.net It's empowering because it proves that love can defeat any and everything, and love continues to influence and empower us forever and ever.

      milagros b Very good. Poignant moments captured in home movies. Well curated production of an incredibly bonding of two deep thinkers under horrendous circumstances and survival with their senses and bodies intact. Quite a tour d force Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/20/22 Full Review Susan T Magnificent and mesmerizing story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Kefi M Magnifique. J'ai pleuré. Beautiful and necessary story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/20/23 Full Review robin m I'm baffled about how any filmmaker could ruin such an amazing story. This film did not pay the respect that these women deserved. Too much emphasis on the process of the granddaughter and filmmaker, with absolutely no logical sequencing or any added history of lgbtq life before WWII, life for Chinese persons in Europe in the 40's, or the further details of the heroic actions of Nelly. Great content ruined. Better to have just read entire diary without deluding the content. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/07/23 Full Review Jo A Deeply moving. But so many unanswered questions! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review Sarah S Nelly & Nadine's evocative love story is finally and rightfully told - in their own hauntingly beautiful words and images - with the assistance of others, including family, friends and skilful, empathetic filmmakers. I so felt their love... it filled my heart up with so many emotions... Tears of sadness for what they endured in Ravensbrück and Mauthausen Concentration Camps; for what they missed during the years of forced separation... The deepest respect for their unending courage and all they conquered; and Joy and relief that their unbreakable bond and devotion to one another was lifelong... Magnifique!
