What the Critics say

Diane de Beer
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Jason Anderson A work of great sensitivity and beauty.
James Berardinelli Fugitive Pieces can be described as ''forgettable.'' The film has lofty goals, but comes across as leaden and pretentious. It’s a character study in which the lead participant is the least interesting person in the movie.
Tomatometer Though the retelling is a bit too subtle, the moving story and solid performances lift Fugitive Pieces beyond standard holocaust tales.
