What are critics saying?


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

Divided We Fall briskly, often hilariously, forbids us to wallow in the specious comfort of untainted local heroes or irredeemable villains.


Village Voice by J. Hoberman

In its compassionate absurdism and underlying dark humor, the movie seeks to reestablish contact with the Czech new wave.


Boston Globe by Jay Carr

The film's triumph - and it is a triumph - in the end rests on the ability of Hrebejk and his actors to convince us that they never stop being normal people.


Austin Chronicle by Marrit Ingman

This a deeply humane and affecting movie, surprisingly gentle in spite of its black-comic tinge, and without the slightest hint of schmaltz.


Time by Richard Schickel

The result is a lovely movie, one that allows its characters unexpected spurts of growth and regression, darkness and grace.
