      Adam Graham Detroit News A payoff is coming - you know it from the film's opening credits, or its poster - but it takes so long to reveal itself that when it does, it can't help but feel anticlimactic. Rated: C Jan 31, 2020 Full Review Barbara VanDenburgh Arizona Republic Far from heightening the sense of mystery, the flashback construction renders the present-day dramatically inert, giving fine actors little to do save deliver exposition. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 3, 2020 Full Review Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle There's a mystery at the heart of "The Song of Names," but it isn't much of a mystery, and once it's solved, the movie loses what little interest it has. Rated: 2/4 Dec 31, 2019 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine ... A film adaptation that takes the scenes from the pages of the book, but loses their emotion. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 5/10 Jan 10, 2023 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse A handsome, yet somewhat dreary historical drama that does not hit the emotional notes it needs to succeed. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 30, 2021 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com If you understand these roots, or even simply resonate with them, then you will be more likely to be able to fill in the gaps left by Caine's script.

Great story line, acting, scenery, set designs, costumes! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/20 Full Review Sonya W Good story line. Would like to know if the song of names is true about the remembrance from concentration.camp. More movies need to be told to insure the events from this horrible war are NEVER forgotten.
