The Film Stage - Unnamed
There’s something powerful to be read into every action, line, and image. Subtle yet striking, this is a film that is filled with the power of exquisitely executed storytelling.
The Seattle Times - Moira Macdonald
It’s a remarkable story, told in a movie that doesn’t always quite live up to it; except for a few crucial scenes, The Zookeeper’s Wife feels a bit too soft-focus for the devastating story it tells.
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Decency, in its raw, instinctive form, is ultimately what earns The Zookeeper’s Wife a place in the self-conflicted canon of Holocaust cinema.
Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
Even at its most engaging (those cubs!), Zookeeper can’t help evoking the dozens of films that have told these stories before, and better.
Slant Magazine - Kenji Fujishima
The film imbues a pessimistic view of the seemingly bottomless depths of human cruelty with sorrowful tragic force.
