Critic Reviews for To Life (À la vie)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

More resonant in theory than in execution, the post-Holocaust drama "To Life" never truly embraces the promise of its title or the roiling emotion beneath its surface.

There is a delicate beauty to this movie and its visual composition.

All this prosperity and abundance would only make sense if it stood in clearer contrast to the women's struggles to come to terms with their dark past.

[The film fails] to capture either the post-traumatic heft of what they dealt with or the amazing chemistry between them.

We feel the women's tentativeness, but not always their joy or their unshakeable bond. What we do see, however, is the tip of what is obviously a very deep iceberg. And that's enough.

À la vie is a gripping study on the resilience of the human spirit, and a testament to the power of community.
