Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The events recounted in the World War II drama Miriam are horrific, and the story behind it is moving. Unfortunately, the finished product feels like exploitation."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times
"It's a forgotten piece of history worth recounting. One only regrets it wasn't better recounted than it is here."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"So bad it doesn't ever approach being good, doesn't even go from bad to good and back to bad again -- just bad bad bad, all the way through."
‑ Charles Petersen, Village Voice
"A threadbare Holocaust drama that could be of some educational value in middle schools."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Such a touching story warrants retelling with better resources."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Miriam is a paean to Jewish oppression as if commissioned by the History Channel."
‑ Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
