What the Critics say
Stephen Farber Languid, but great acting.
James Berardinelli A misfire in far too many meaningful aspects, The Book Thief is so bad that it's tough to decide whether it's better used as a sleep aid or watched while under the influence as an object of derision.
Peter Travers If there can be such a thing as a sweet, reflective fable about death and the Holocaust, The Book Thief is it.
Tomatometer A bit too safe in its handling of its Nazi Germany setting, The Book Thief counters its constraints with a respectful tone and strong performances.
