  5. Muraki's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    i was fascinated with the movement of the camera, this is a great mind-conscience tragedy delivered with a real fine acting

  6. n/a's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    Because the film’s inbuilt second half buildup to the tragic denouement feels only just adumbrated by the much more leisurely paced, darkly comic first half, I was thrown for a bit of a loop in the end, rather than incensed or saddened, but after some thought let it also be said the counterbalance between the two does provide a rather provocative dichotomy.

  7. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    Sobre el tránsito del egoísmo al acto humanitario. Una historia sobre la redención, cuestión que se logra no por el odio político, sino por una voluntad interna, natural y ajena a políticas o respetos tradicionales. Lo del protagonista principal es pura sensibilidad humana, lo sabes desde la primera vez que observa las manos temblorosas de una anciana y este se conmueve. Un final optimista entre la desgracia bélica.

  8. Jack D. Fleischer's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    I couldn't hang with the ending. No pun intended.

  9. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    The struggle to maintain a loyalty born out of an unusual friendship in the midst of war and racial persecution is explored with subtlety and great melancholy.

  12. dave's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    Excellent, insightful film about the fine line between cowardice and heroism. Very enjoyable. Funny, sad, and thought provoking.

  14. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    To be paired with Closely Watched Trains; humor 'mongst horror. On a side note, I think Criterion is due for a reissue with improved subs and some of those appreciative interviews/essays and background on the sociopolitical climate. Blu-ray, what?

  15. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

  16. James Devereaux's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    Extremely powerful. Heartbreaking.

  17. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    Fascism seen and felt from the inside. There is only a thin line separating ordinary people and ordinary monsters. Great scene: the camera is searching for Antonin Brtko's face in Rozalie Lautmann's shop, circular travellings that stop several times on Antonin who's trying to avoid the objective, to avoid us, to avoid the voice of his conscience. Highly recommended.

  18. Giovanni Colantonio's rating of the film The Shop on Main Street

    It's got a slow build, but it evens out to a fantastic climax. It all really pays off. Not that the time up until then is wasted of course. Even without the last few scenes, the film is a really well balanced mix of comedy, drama, and great characterization.
