  1. soniczny's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    It is a very nice film. I enjoyed it. (But remember there is a polyvocality on Arendt/Eichmann case. i.E. see Lantzmann's "Last of the unjust")

  2. xphile's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    felt a bit too much like they tried to put the complexity of a groundbreaking thinker into a rather simple portrayal but it`s a movie about hannah arendt so how bad can it be right

  3. Ameille's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

  4. anarresti's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    I have wanted to start reading Hannah Arendt for a long time, and this just enticed me more. Such intellectual courage, such intense, brave life.

  5. João Eça's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    such an important subject diserved a better film. interesting because the subject is interesting

  6. redux's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Evil is banal, but the film about the realization shouldn't be.

  7. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    The film is based on an extremely interesting true story about one of the greatest political theorists of the 20th century, but – sadly – not even great true stories become automatically great cinema. All the scenes come off as staged, trying to make a point instead of carrying the story further. Arendt’s theories and views are truly insightful, but I suggest you read the book.

  9. HSBilly's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

  10. lisa's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    good as an intro / easily summarisable portrait of the events it portrays

  11. batarde's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

  12. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Le reazioni scatenate da La banalità del male. Scolastico, ben recitato, versione originale obbligatoria

  13. Karthik's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    I was prepared to dislike an (admittedly ambitious) film that wanted to boil down the thought of a complex thinker into a psychodrama about her involvement with the cause célèbre show-trial which also made her a pop-intellectual icon, but schmaltzy and manipulative as the film is, it is also surprisingly gripping primarily because of the acting (ranging from moody complex grays to comic chiaroscuros).

  14. JoanaSantos's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    conceito fixe, mas o filme em si é muito desinteressante e tem partes bem desnecessárias. acho que se cortassem as partes em que ela está a acender cigarros, o filme ia ter à vontade menos meia hora

  15. Vinod Narayan's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Hannah Arendt is a biographical movie on the German Jewish Philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt who became controversial for the introduction of the concept “The Banality of Evil”. This 2012 German-Luxembourgian-French collaboration, the movie has Barbara Sukowa in the lead..... Wow.. what a performance.... I am surprised she was not nominated for Academy Awards that year

  16. riraru's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Einen "Shitstorm", wie man heute sagen würde, hatte Arendt ausgelöst. Der Film ist angenehm konventionell, was Konzentration auf die Streitgespräche und Monologe erlaubt; jedoch wurde insgesamt zuviel Gewicht auf die Arendt-Gegner gelegt, ihre eigenen Gedanken finde ich wenig nachvollziehbar dargestellt, aber so will man sich mehr mit ihrem Werk auseinandersetzen.

  17. Murat Benbanaste's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Friends whose opinions I value hated, but I liked it. Surely, it cannot claim to be "art", for it is still too formulaic in its narrative and directing. But the material it's based on makes it interesting, however superficial Arendt may be depicted. I always like historically important man-woman of ideas being depicted on screen - however bad the filmmaking itself be. At least they are being "available" to people.

  18. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Von Trotta’s risky approach must be praised since it is anti-sensationalist, but in several moments the film fails to engage... Full Review: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/11/hannah-arendt-2012.html

  19. msmichel's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    Despite an exceptional performance by Barbara Sukowa, Von Trotta's film about Arendt's writing of an article on the trial of Eichmann and her theory on the 'banality of evil' and the fallout of both never really feels more than recreation and truly fails to engage. That such a subject fails cinematically is the fault of unfocused script and a visual sense that feels more muted and grey like a faded photo.

  21. Pedro Zambujo's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    As a vehicle to Arendt's thought, it's good enough. As cinema, it's pretty mediocre.

  22. Beatriz M.'s rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    "Man cannot be free if he does not know that he is subject to necessity, because his freedom is always won in his never wholly successful attempts to liberate himself from necessity."

  23. Juliana's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    "The greatest evil in the world is the evil committed by nobody" Hannah Arendt

  24. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Hannah Arendt

    ★★★★ sincerity of speech and thinking has it both ways.
