      Rosie A I really loved this film. You go on a journey with the artist. And the sequence in which he finally finds his voice, and paints the paintings which unlock his past and his future, is just so moving and compelling. I was very moved by the actors. And a great score by Max Richter. Even if it does play fast and loose with Gerhard Richter's biography, it is still a very powerful portrait of an artist's journey to creation. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/21/24 Full Review Margreet D Saw it pre Covid, still thinking about it. Nowadays we talk a lot about inclusion, this is about exclusion. Artists, but also if you look differently at art, if you are different according to social norms. People will correct you, or worse. Be ware. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/09/23 Full Review Rosana B Mais uma linda biografia... Baseado na biografia de Gerard Richter, passa por sua infância durante a guerra, a perda de sua tia, Elisabeth, uma jovem que lhe inspirou com a imaginação e o amor pela vida e liberdade, sua paixão uma outra Elizabeth, lindo, romântico e apaixonante... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/30/23 Full Review Lanfranco C A great biopic and a journey in the History of Germany and in the soul of the German People Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review HENRY A Based on an artist's work, it takes on Germany, Nazis, guilt, and the struggle to make art that means something. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/11/23 Full Review PanProduction Great movie! I have never seen anything like it in other films about artists. Depicts the arduous road toward artistic creativity.

      Matthew Thrift Little White Lies "Never look away," we're told for the umpteenth time. But with von Donnersmarck serving as a dubious Virgil through the circles of 20th century history, you're better off just looking elsewhere. Rated: 1/5 Jul 9, 2019 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Another misstep, this time considerably less forgivable. Rated: 2/5 Jul 8, 2019 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Never Look Away is not without ambition and reach, and there is a real storytelling impulse. But the central performance of Schilling looks shruggingly uncertain. Rated: 2/5 Jul 5, 2019 Full Review Juan José Beteta Cinencuentro A film that has an effective story that unravels in different formal and narrative layers. [Full review in Spanish] Jul 17, 2023 Full Review Tom O'Brien Next Best Picture Watching "Never Look Away" is like settling in with a lengthy novel that, despite meandering now and then, turns out to be a very satisfying read. Or in this case, a very satisfying film. Rated: 7/10 Jun 14, 2022 Full Review Lonita Cook KCTV5 News at 9 You feel compelled to stay with [the character] for the whole three hours.
