Train of Life
Provided by Metacritic.com
Another phantasmagorical tale of life among the Nazis, is upon us. This one works much better.
Henry Cabot Beck
Every bit as reverent as "Schindler's List," and no less successful.
It's entertainment that never lets us off the hook.
Christian Science Monitor
More imaginative and responsible than the somewhat similar "Life Is Beautiful."
Far superior to either "Life Is Beautiful" or "Jakob the Liar."
TV Guide Magazine
A tragicomic Holocaust fable that's by turns silly, triumphant and achingly sad.
The New York Times
What saves Train of Life from sinking into sudsy Holocaust kitsch is its sustained comic buoyancy.
Less-than-scintillating spin on "Life Is Beautiful."
San Francisco Chronicle
A merry, wistful, tear-and-a-smile romp about the Holocaust, of all things.
Much of the film is frankly ludicrous, but that does little to dispel its overall power and passion.
