    The finest film of the year. Neither a documentary nor a fiction film, it charts the discovery of an odd relationship between a Nazi and a Zionist by their descendants. Gradually, it reveals what it means to live in history--what you ignore, forget, what you do to survive. It's a much more personal film than Shoah and The Sorrow and the Pity, but it's as meaningful and moving. It must be seen.

    The Holocaust must never be forgotten, but like many well-intentioned documentaries, The Flat derives more power from the implicit strength of the subject than from the explicit choices of the director.

    There's something touching about the way Goldfinger obeys his moral compass. He doesn't seem at all happy with that luxury. It's a burden by a more extravagant name.

    I will salute the deftness and intelligence with which Goldfinger observes the reactions of the living to the revelations of the dead.
