  1. There are no end of tear-jerking moments in Perlasca, a well-made and heart-rending Italian "Schindler's List."
  2. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    Negrin's film is a well-deserved tribute to a principled man who dared to act when principles no longer counted for anything.
  3. Zingaretti does a fine job shading a character that is written as an unalloyed saint.
  4. Reviewed by: Peter L'Official
    More courageous than Spielberg in its depiction of Nazi brutality, Perlasca occasionally feels like the made-for-Italian-TV film that it is.
  5. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib
    Confusing lack of historical set-up considerably dims the potential luster of a great true story: Helmer Alberto Negrin relies instead on competently rendered but cliche-ridden melodrama of nasty Nazis and suffering Jews.
  6. Unfortunately, this feature, originally made for Italian television, doesn't quite do justice to its stirring subject.
  7. Giorgio Perlasca, who has been compared to Oskar Schindler, deserves better than this Italian television film.

    This movie is great, the effects are horrible but thats not the point. The point of the movie is to show the emotion. This movie does more than that and is a welcome change against all the other movies that were made about this time period. Full Review »
