      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      No Place on Earth is a haunting and well-researched -- if occasionally uneven -- account of human endurance in Nazi Germany.

      Jordan Hoffman Times of Israel This film, while hardly being a masterpiece of cinema, has more than its share of gripping moments and emotional revelations. Sep 26, 2017 Full Review Leah Churner Austin Chronicle None of my formal quibbles is meant to make light of this heroic story. Indeed, some chronicle is better than no chronicle, but the past exists only in the retelling; how history is written is as important as the story itself. Rated: 2.5/5 May 3, 2013 Full Review Moira MacDonald Seattle Times "No Place on Earth" is at its most moving when showing us, in close-up, the still-haunted faces of the cave dwellers, many of whom tell their stories to director Janet Tobias' camera. Rated: 2.5/4 May 2, 2013 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension ...deeply moving and well-earned. Mar 17, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell While there's not much that sets No Place on Earth above a well constructed program one would see on the History Channel, it's a compelling tale from a horrific period of time. Aug 9, 2019 Full Review James Wegg JWR Janet Tobias has expertly crafted this tale of Jewish families in the western Ukraine fighting for their lives by ferreting underground and living for nearly a year and a half in dark, damp caves in the countryside. Rated: 4.5/5 Mar 13, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
