Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Korkoro fashions a thin tapestry out of the authentic and the chintzy."
‑ Scott Tobias, NPR
"While much of Korkoro avoids stylistic flourishes, Gatlif picks his moments to use cinematic language to revel in the terror his characters experience."
‑ Glenn Heath Jr., Slant Magazine
"Despite some flaws, this is one of the more important films likely to be seen in 2011 since it deals with a people who are facing brutal discrimination all across Europe."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"The war hovers, its intrusions and dangers giving the story tension and a minute-by-minute poignancy: these lives, we're aware, may all too soon be erased."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"Reminding the world of the Roma Holocaust. . .lovely film is as life-affirming as it is sad. If rated, it would be at most PG-13 and deserves to be seen by a wide audience."
‑ Nora Lee Mandel, Film-Forward.com
"Who remembers the holocaust of gypsies during the Nazi era? See this lively, comic and tragic film and you always will."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Robust emotion and cultural detail offset slight plotting and characterizations."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"There's a great, little-known story of the Nazi persecution of gypsies, but this narcissistic morass of bathos and pure cliché is not it."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
