Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru: Every account from a Holocaust survivor is necessary in order to preserve the memory of such a horrifying event from the past. At a running time of just about 1 hour, The Touch of Angel manages to be emotionally resonating, gripping and vital.
Andrzej Fidyk, TVP: It’s really a topnotch film and deserves a discerning viewing, as well as a far-reaching presence in major film festivals and events around the world.
Amy Zucker Morgenstern, Unitarian Universalist Church: One of the most powerful films I've ever seen. Well-constructed and visually beautiful. Thinking about all the people who are threatened by genocide or war now, or are refugees, it's a call to my conscience not to be silent.
David Noh, Film Journal: Few survivors’ stories can match that of Henryk Schönker. Pawlowski embellishes his words with reconfigured period photographs and re-enactments which, for once, due to his low-key and unmelodramatic approach, add to Schönker's simple yet elementally powerful words.
