San Francisco Chronicle
An exquisite and powerful documentary -- one whose elegance only heightens its devastating impact.
Wall Street Journal
It's astonishing, and moving.
Speaks so eloquently for itself, there's not much more for me to do than urge you to get over to the Nuart for the one week it's playing in Los Angeles.
Miami Herald
It's an eye opener to how quickly a society can switch from being open and tolerant to pointing fingers -- and worse -- at those deemed different.
San Francisco Examiner
Soberly, deeply effective.
Portland Oregonian
Perhaps the most disturbing fact in the film comes in the text at the end: Paragraph 175 remained on the books in both halves of postwar Germany until the late 1960s.
New York Daily News
Explores the comparatively enlightened Berlin culture that had allowed homosexuality to flourish in intellectual and social circles before the Nazis forcibly changed the national mind-set.
Christian Science Monitor
Victimization of homosexuals during the Holocaust era has often been overlooked. Epstein and Friedman lucidly recount this woeful history, with help from Everett's articulate narration.
New York Post
A worthy addition to the growing canon of Holocaust documentaries.
Evokes feelings of fascination and heartbreak, as well as a sense of disbelief.
