  1. This leisurely, transfixing movie is much more interested in nostalgic atmosphere than "educational" facts.
  2. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Hauntingly beautiful documentary.
  3. Odessa ... Odessa! could use a little more narrative substance to augment its haunting imagery but is ultimately a memorable portrait of cultural dislocation.
  4. 60
    A modernist travelogue, at once impressionistic and precise.
  5. Reviewed by: Jeremy Mathews

    A lyrical poem to the lost places in our past and our heritage.
  6. Sometimes beautiful to look at but ultimately too poetic for its own good.
  7. 40
    Too pretty to dismiss, but too dull to recommend.
