Critic Reviews of "The Boy In The Striped Pajamas"Time OutNovember 17, 2011
[Director] Mark Herman knows how to milk the melodrama from every scene, but viewers may feel a little icky about the experience.Orlando SentinelMay 13, 2009
The result isn't a deep film, but rather a profound one.Minneapolis Star TribuneNovember 14, 2008
Young Scanlon and Butterfield are scathingly effective, never overplaying their roles.Detroit NewsNovember 14, 2008
In truth, the film is sure to stop the hearts of many who see it. There may indeed be hope in hell, but better to avoid hell altogether.Boston GlobeNovember 14, 2008
Because its gaze is so level and so unyielding, it stands as one of the better dramatic films made on this subject (although it's not nearly as fine as Louis Malle's Au Revoir les Enfants, in which the camps remain a distant abstraction).Arizona RepublicNovember 13, 2008
Although it's told from the perspective of a child, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is as shattering as any film about the Holocaust could be, perhaps more so.CinemaniaJuly 12, 2012
Not without its qualities, the movie ultimately does a disservice to the very people it purports to represent.Digital SpyJuly 14, 2011
A film dealing with the Holocaust really should be a little less clumsily executed, manipulative and contrived than this.Times-PicayuneAugust 14, 2009
Built upon a powerful but gimmicky end, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas would make a fine short. As a full-length feature, though, the pajamas wear thin quickly.Sydney Morning HeraldMay 01, 2009
We are left in no doubt about the brutality of what's going on there but it's almost entirely off-screen. Still, the film is terribly confronting.Time Out SydneyApril 24, 2009
This writer can't remember witnessing a harder-hitting kids' movie denouement than the one that closes this microcosm of middle-class German family life in WWII.MovieTime, ABC Radio NationalApril 24, 2009
Much of the film depends on our ability to suspend disbelief and see the world as Bruno sees it. It has a finale designed to shock.
