It is visually stunning, and they acting is good, however there are several "stories" and you believe they are going somewhere...and then they abruptly just don't. Also, a bit long, but I did enjoy the ride, and it was very interesting to me as it is loosely based on Gerhard Richter's rise to prominence as one of Germany's best modern artists...there is a humanity about this film, subtle, and very uplifting in terms of how art is so important, and in life, sometimes that is all we have.
Never Look Away is an often moving, thoughtful drama about the correlations between personal experience, politics and art.
The work’s considerations of the intimate connection among being, art and life finally feel quite superficial.
In the end, Donnersmarck has it both ways: He’s sentimental and he’s provocative, a craftsman who has something to say and it going to take his time saying it.
