Time Out by

The movie succeeds in generating only mild outrage, tempered by impeccable tastefulness and the safe distance of time.


Variety by Jordan Mintzer

Turning one of the darkest moments in modern French history into syrupy historical drama, writer-director Rose Bosch's The Round Up is a polished, pathos-driven re-creation of the Vichy regime's mass imprisonment and disposal of 13,000 Parisian Jews in summer 1942.


Village Voice by Michael Atkinson

Treading on a shameful piece of French history, Bosch bizarrely intercuts scenes of Hitler, Himmler, and Hess working out the logistics of the exportations, in vignettes that smack of "Inglourious Basterds" farce, but otherwise, she's got a steady grip on the tear-jerking, if that's your awards-season cocktail.


Portland Oregonian by Stan Hall

There are two halves to La Rafle. The successful one involves the personal tribulations of the families and other souls who were jammed into a Paris velodrome for days under intolerable conditions.


Boston Globe by Ty Burr

A big, sorrowful, dramatically trite period epic about a bleak chapter in the history of modern France.
