“If Never Look Away gives us a plot of blithe, even sudsy-at-times compellingness, with pulsing subplots and plural characters, isn't that better than a worthy bore?”
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"[An] engrossing historical romantic drama with a wonderful cast..."
-Angie Errigo, The List
"With Never Look Away, the film-maker has regained his mojo, helming his second foreign language Oscar contender plus a deserved nomination for cinematographer Caleb Deschanel earlier this year."
- Mark Kermode, The Observer
"The German Oscar nominee for best foreign-language film is a triumphant return form to filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, a treatise on love and war and the limitless reach of art that, even when it trips up, is never less than exhilarating.”
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"This is a film that throws a frame around history, and makes it as intimate and tender as a portrait."
-Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
From the director of Academy Award winner The Lives of Others, comes another tale that makes gripping drama from individuals caught up in the sweep of history. Never Look Away is the decades-long tale of an artist who must confront and grapple with the realities of creation under Nazism and socialism, where truth and art have the force of life and death.
Despite an epic historical canvas, Never Look Away is painted with detailed psychological insight into characters from every section of society. Anyone familiar with the greats of post-War German art – from Gerhard Richter to Joseph Beuys – will be electrified by seeing their world brought to the screen with their lucid visual flair.
