Jason Anderson In his respectful adaptation, Little Voice director Mark Herman attempts to preserve the original’s intentionally na´ve, storybook-like tone but the movie falls prey to many of the problems that mar screen portrayals of the Holocaust.
James Berardinelli t is a well-made, serious effort, but the pervasive sense of oversimplification and contrivance left me unpersuaded that this is more than a minor take on a major historical event.
Tomatometer A touching and haunting family film that deals with the Holocaust in an arresting and unusual manner, and packs a brutal final punch of a twist.
