THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
"AN EXT RDINARY
unlike any other Ho ocaust film ever made. This isn't a
conventional docimentary composed of newsreel
footage from the archives. The images of 'SHOAH'
prompt no preconditioned responses. `SHOAH' is a
voyage of discovery through memories that, because
they are contemporatly, bring the past back to us with a
new, devastating clarity. Only Marcel Ophuls'
"SORROW AND THE PITY" is in any way comparable."
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times
I find myself still mulling over landscapes, facial expres-
sions, vocal inflections—the very stuff of cinema—
AND EVEN WANTING TO SEE IT AGAIN."
—J. Hoberman, Village Voice
ONE OF THE GREAT
OF ALL TIME...
An emotionally powerful, overwhelming and absolutely
engrossing experience not to be missed.
`SHOAH' is not just a movie. It's an event."
— William Wolf, Gannett Newspapers
"I consider `SHOAH' to be the greatest documentary
about contemporary history ever made, bar none, and by
far the greatest film I've ever seen about the Holocaust."
—Marcel Ophuls, American Film
"THERE IS MAGIC
IN THIS FILM...A
de Beauvoir,' Le Monde
A MAditli n ikIRK...
A BEAUTIFUL FILM.
An astonishing achievement, a probing, vibrant
examination that penetrates to the vortex of the
Holocaust. It contains no archival footage. No atrocity
scenes. Rather, 'SHOAH' moves along swiftly in an
impassioned-yet-dispassionate way...making what
happened more crystal clear than anything within
memory. Lanzmann stretches a great canvas and
paints upon it like Seurat."
—Leo Seligsohn, Newsday
