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

    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.

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

    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.

    A well-meaning but inexpertly dramatized account of the roundup of 13,000 Parisian Jews in the summer of 1942.

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

    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.
