The Playlist

By Mark Zhuravsy
Stumbles out of the gate with a pacing that suggests a stern history lesson, despite warm performances from the cast and a polished look.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
A big, sorrowful, dramatically trite period epic about a bleak chapter in the history of modern France.

Slant Magazine

Sentimentality may make the movie's agony more digestible, but its darkness resists any glossing over of what isn't only France's, but Europe's painful legacy.

Variety

By Jordan Mintzer
Turning one of the darkest moments in modern French history into syrupy historical drama, writer-director Rose Bosch's The Round Up is a polished, pathos-driven re-creation of the Vichy regime's mass imprisonment and disposal of 13,000 Parisian Jews in summer 1942.

There are two halves to La Rafle. The successful one involves the personal tribulations of the families and other souls who were jammed into a Paris velodrome for days under intolerable conditions.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

It is a paint-by-numbers Holocaust movie, scrupulously balanced, always cautious, occasionally clichéd, often sentimental.

Time Out New York

The movie succeeds in generating only mild outrage, tempered by impeccable tastefulness and the safe distance of time.

The Hollywood Reporter

A bankable cast, a hint of controversy and high production values may play in their favor commercially, but Bosch and her producer-husband Ilan Goldman have come dangerously close to making a feel-good movie about the Holocaust.
