Sarah's Key -- Film Review
Moving gracefully across the decades and people's hidden histories, Gilles Paquet-Brenner's "Sarah's Key" (Elle s'appelait Sarah) relates a highly emotional yet unsentimental story about a Paris-based journalist digging into a Holocaust story that she discovers has a connection to her own family.
The movie gathers momentum with a steady, assured pace, accumulating incidents, characters, secrets and lies until the rush of events is absolutely transfixing. Cinema can sometimes rival the novel in compulsive intensity and Sarah's Key is one such example.
