      Critics Consensus

      Paradise hits hard and lingers, although viewers who've seen a number of other Holocaust-set dramas may find it all a bit familiar.

      Ben Sachs Chicago Reader Black-and-white cinematography and minimalist sound design contribute to the bleak, austere tone, which befits the theme of survival in a morally bankrupt world. Nov 16, 2017 Full Review Bruce DeMara Toronto Star Konchalovskiy presents this grimly contemplative tale appropriately in black and white, drawing powerful performances from all three principals, especially Yuliya Vysotskaya as Olga. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 16, 2017 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times "Paradise" and its predictable waltz of suffering, choked consciousness and monstrosity adds little to the problematic subset of camp-themed World War II movies, which feel like nostalgia for hell. Oct 12, 2017 Full Review Nicholas Bell Konchalovsky's latest masterwork is a pervasive scream of anguish from the not-too-distant past. Rated: 4/5 Oct 4, 2019 Full Review Antonio R. Jiménez Espinof Avoiding dramatizations and effects, Konchalovsky molds a movie that works as an awkward reminder of the greatest misfortune of our recent past. [Full Review in Spanish] Aug 5, 2019 Full Review Filipe Freitas Always Good Movies ... incapable to give a proper sequence to a few good ideas, allowing both the tedium and the disorganization to circumscribe a plot that brusquely decays half-way. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 29, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Pathetically dumbed down driven. Sensationalized with the Hollywood agenda. Good acting. But screenplay is predictably simple and demeaning. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Normally do not like seeing foreign films, however yours looks not only compelling but very enlightening as well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw this at the Cleveland International Film Festival 2016. This Russian/German produced Holocaust film has a unique format in that the three main characters tell their versions of the story through interrogations in a very nondescript room. These are intercut with flashbacks showing what life was like before WWII hit and mainly what life was like for the resistance fighter Olga in a particular concentration camp. Like Casablanca and so many other WWII dramas there are several SS officers and guards as well as French collaborators. The period detail and black and white cinematography that really helps set the scene are both so well done. The performers are nuanced and the characters are three dimensional. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies I have ever seen. For mature audience. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
