      71% Tomatometer 7 Reviews The lure of family mysteries lies at the heart of STILL LIFE IN LODZ, an emotionally riveting documentary that journeys to the historically tumultuous city of Lodz, Poland. Here, a surprise reunion with a painting that hung in the same apartment for 75 world-altering years becomes a probing investigation into the power of memory, art, time and resilience. What follows is a deeply personal detective story rich with twists and turns. But, equally it is an ode to the lost generations of Jewish Lodz and a look at how fragile--but also how incredibly necessary--our relationship with the past is for creating the future.

      Peter Keough Boston Globe The film evokes melancholy and hope, but also lingering anxiety. Rated: 3/4 Mar 19, 2021 Full Review Justine Smith RogerEbert.com Many of the most compelling elements of Still Life in Lodz are bogged down by distracting filmmaking flourishes. Rated: 2/4 Mar 12, 2021 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times The individual stories are powerful, as are the visual comparisons between present-day and historical locations. A few animated sequences effectively evoke the evanescence of memory. Mar 11, 2021 Full Review Liam Trump Film Threat The ineffectiveness of how the archive footage, animation, and music merge make the pacing choppy and uneven. There's definitely an interesting story here, but these elements end up squandering much of the potential. Rated: 4/10 Apr 25, 2021 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Maven's Nest Moving and informative despite frustrations...Poignant aural and visual context...amidst confusing editing, chronology of discoveries, and repetition...to trace an obsession. Rated: 6/10 Apr 2, 2021 Full Review Jared Mobarak The Film Stage Elbaum's position as someone [paying respects and gaining insight] allows her to be the perfect steward with as much curiosity, knowledge, and reverie as we could hope [for].
