When Alone in Berlin reaches the end of its journey, it's the performances of Gleeson and Thompson that ensure we'll never forget the bravery of Otto and Anna.

The splendid actors ... make up for the weaknesses with performances that radiate strength and integrity.

This handsomely mounted and well-acted World War II drama lacks the narrative urgency to match its heartfelt sincerity.

"Alone in Berlin" proceeds like a train crossing a plain. Without twists or turns, hills or valleys, its dramatic engine chugs reliably forward, delivering its cargo of World War II tragedy with bland efficiency.
