Review: One of the biggest problems I had with Life Is Beautiful was its attempt to add a touch of humor to the Holocaust. It was still tragic and it made sense, but it just didn’t work for me. The same issue looks to plague this film as well.
Never underestimate World War II dramas about the Jewish people. Jesse Eisenberg and Ed Harris could be key players, but with an unknown director at the helm, it isn’t certain to resonate.
