Read our Essential Opinion on The Circle (Der Kreis)
Won “BEST DOCUMENTARY”, and “BEST FILM” at 10 international film festivals awards
“A richly absorbing historical docudrama.”
— Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
“The Circle has a sincerity and an honesty that shames far more expensive but over-polished dramas. Plenty of movies have happy endings; The Circle shows you both the happy ending and the incredibly hard work it took to get there.”
— James Rocchi, TheWrap
“The Circle is an undiscovered gem that constantly delights with its unshowy transference of an inherited blood debt that we finally are 'beginning' to honour. ”
— D W Mault, CineVue
