A poignant story of post holocaust Polish child prodigy violinist. Beautifully done, well acted.
beautiful story and interesting mystery.
Literate, sober, soulful, and considered as it is, the movie is also a little overly scrupulous in its tastefulness.
There’s ultimately too much strained seriousness in The Song of Names' dramatically flimsy and symbolically heavy episodic narrative, making Girard and Caine’s already dated feel-good historical drama seem especially tacky.
A somewhat claggy, uneven work with stiff performances from the leads, both of whom seem to be sleep-talking lines as if they learned them in Yiddish first.
