The film has problems, despite the inarguable worthiness of the material.

I'm not a fan of reenactments in documentaries, especially when, as here, the real-life footage is so searing. But the staged sequences are tastefully done... This film is itself an important act of historical reclamation.

Though its form is complex, including archival scenes that include concentration camp-type footage, the film's emotional through line is clear and direct.
