Reviews

  • "Younger viewers will receive a worthy, accessible lesson in the era's dreadful legacy, though older audiences may sometimes find its approach - and a few of the performances - a tad on-the-nose."
    - Los Angeles Times
  • "This tear-jerker finds a fresh angle on familiar tragedy and turbulence, following a German Shepherd through World War 2."
    - Variety
  • "This film is a tremendous jumping-off point for discussion about WWII and The Holocaust, a bridge that can be used to bring better understanding to the youth this film seems interested in including in the conversation."
