Filmmakers never seem to run out of footnotes to history during World War II. This one is better served in the pages of a novel. It doesn't work on film.
The script and direction ... [are] dealing with actual historical atrocities and tragedies, and distilling them into another resilience-of-the-human-spirit bromide.
Markevicius and Jones find meaning in the small moments of humanity within the horrors of war - those times when the oppressed and even the oppressors get a chance, just for a little while, to be people.
Sometimes only a fine line separates tragic sweep from a movie that never comes to life as anything other than actors dressed in costumes, straining to inhabit an alien chapter of history.
The film is heartfelt and often powerful but sometimes too sluggish to carry maximum impact.
Ashes in the Snow is a good, yet unsatisfying movie with the potential to have been so much better.
Simplistic dialogue threatens to sink a drama with expansive cinematography, taking place in a pair of Soviet gulags and filmed in Lithuania.
A big, bold, and beautiful story that is equally matched with breathtaking cinematography and a haunting score.
