      Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle This is an often emotionally harrowing depiction of a young idealist running smack into the brutal reality of occupied life. Rated: 3/5 May 27, 2011 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com This is a wonderfully realized human adventure, the tragedy and heartache inherent in warfare coupled with inner bursts of heroism magnetically brought to life first frame to last. Rated: 3/4 Apr 29, 2011 Full Review Tom Long Detroit News Writer-director Martin Koolhoven hits just the right balance of domesticity and oppression here, setting up the film's tense second half with sweet early touches of naivete. Rated: B Apr 29, 2011 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Winter in Wartime is more honest and equitable than most exaggerated testimonies of era's in hard times. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 6, 2022 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Beautifully photographed... However, the film doesn't do anything we haven't seen before. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 20, 2020 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The film is mesmerizing. Rated: 3.0/4.0 Sep 27, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Wonderfully made Dutch film carried by a 14 year old actor, who faces decisions on right and wrong, and betrayal. We thought it was excellent. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Another interesting WWII story. The filmmaking got a little in its own way, with the score trying way too hard. It was really overbearing and distracting at times. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Una excelente historia acompañada de una bellísima fotografía y unas actuaciones memorables. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Grest but i hope they didn't use real animals to film a few horrible scenes Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review a.l.jude p Something came out real hard after a quite long while. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An oversimple tragedy of a young man told in a manner that's affecting only because its pacing and techniques are too familiar. For one that finds it too conventional, the suspense melts away, and the affection is lost. One is then left with slushy water to wallow in in this not-quite-solid sighful winter of a film.
