I know I am going to fly in the face of the majority of reviews BUT I found this really boring AND a little 'choppy' at times.Have seen many films on the 'Holcaust' and I find this towards the bottom of the list.Kristen Scott Thomas I find needs 'winding up' at times.Could have been a really good film------but some of this just doesn't make sense.Why would you not search ALL your property completely if you had a bad smell?Won't say any more it may spoil anothers viewing!!!Can't recommend----just so slow and tedious.

This film was OK. Upsetting and telling an important part of history, but I don't understand why anyone would make a film that just leaves the viewer with a feeling of flat hopelessness. I just don't understand the point of the plot. If it were true, it would be a tragic true story but I feel the writer of the book and the film are just trying to play with the emotions of the reader/watcher in a contrived way. It kind of exploits an horrific historical event by using it as a driver for a story that is slow, amateur, manipulative and devoid of hope. Is the message of this film 'Life is sh*t'? Maybe it is to the writer, but why share that negativity in a totally uninteresting way? If you're going to create entertainment, please make it entertaining.

Sarah's Key is a very good French film with some excellent performances and cinematography.

When I choose to buy a Blu-ray disc, I do so hoping to find the very best picture and sound quality. This disc delivers on both counts.

Why then did the disc producers choose to ruin the superb picture transfer with permanent subtitles? The subtitles can not be turned off - they are burned into the picture. Appalling!

If you can understand French language, my advise is to buy the French release Blu-ray. That has French subtitles for the many English language scenes, but at least these can be turned off.

Annoyingly, I also watched the similarly themed French film `The Round Up' on a UK released Blu-ray and this had exactly the same problem. Is this a new trend to ruin the film enthusiast's enjoyment?

Why bother with Blu-ray picture quality when it is wrecked with video graffiti?

Really poor. Plot changed, characters omitted. Having read the book our Book Club watched this and just couldn't believe how bad the film was.

read the book and don't bother with this rubbish. Book was superb,film so boring and dull, you just don't care about the characters. Also be warned it's mostly in French with English subtitles.
