  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film It Happened Here

    A marvel of off-screen determination & tenacity which fitfully shines through a bitty, fractured narrative. I suppose the location stagings are the thing here not verisimilitude which is circumstantial to say the least. Whether by design or budget, the risk of heavy handedness is diffused, into an almost blank texture which nevertheless must still have been raw recent memory in the early 60s despite the ‘what ifery’.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film It Happened Here

    Ce qui étonne et marque avant tout le spectateur est la remarquable et scrupuleuse reconstitution d'époque qui donne aux événements un extraordinaire cachet d'authenticité et une large et puissante crédibilité historique. Si le film a aussi l'évident mérite de montrer comment une absence ou une léthargie de conscience politique peut mener vers une indirecte adéquation aux thèses fascistes; www.cinefiches.com
