The horrors of the Jewish Holocaust are revisited in this drama by Czech director Matej Minac. The film opens with the upwardly mobile Silberstein clan led by Jakub (Josef Abrham), as he buys a villa in the countryside just before Hitler overruns the country. His blind faith in family unity ironically keeps a number of his relatives in the country to be victimized by the Nazis. Meanwhile, British humanitarian Nicholas Winton (Rupert Graves) tries to rescue hundreds of Czech children and get them out of the country. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A tone of rueful compassion ... reverberates throughout this film, whose meaning and impact is sadly heightened by current world events."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"As banal as the telling may be -- and at times, All My Loved Ones more than flirts with kitsch -- the tale commands attention."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"Vastly moving."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Jirí Hubac's script is a gem. His characters are engaging, intimate and the dialogue is realistic and greatly moving. The scope of the Silberstein family is large and we grow attached to their lives, full of strength, warmth and vitality.."
‑ Niki Patton, Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
"The movie is loaded with good intentions, but in his zeal to squeeze the action and our emotions into the all-too-familiar dramatic arc of the Holocaust escape story, Minac drains his movie of all individuality."
‑ Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"Sensitive ensemble performances and good period reconstruction add up to a moving tragedy with some buoyant human moments."
‑ Richard James Havis, Hollywood Reporter
"It's truly awful and heartbreaking subject matter, but one whose lessons are well worth revisiting as many times as possible."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"The film is so packed with subplots involving the various Silbersteins that it feels more like the pilot episode of a TV series than a feature film."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Schindler's List it ain't."
‑ Megan Turner, New York Post
"It offers a glimpse of the Solomonic decision facing Jewish parents in those turbulent times: to save their children and yet to lose them."
‑ Leslie Camhi, Village Voice
"There's a persistent theatrical sentiment and a woozy quality to the manner of the storytelling, which undercuts the devastatingly telling impact of utter loss personified in the film's simple title."
‑ Bridget Byrne, Boxoffice Magazine
