A bit too safe in its handling of its Nazi Germany setting, The Book Thief counters its constraints with a respectful tone and strong performances. Super Reviewer. Your email address will solely be used for verifying the ticket. All Critics Top Critics The film is hamstrung by the novel's structure, unsure whether to be a 12A-certificate family outing, or to luxuriate in morbid irony. Kate Muir. It's certainly pretty to look at, reminiscent of those Disneyland parades where horses are much in evidence, but their excrement thanks to neat little sacks attached to the creatures' nether regions never soils the ground.
It's a worryingly lenient and obtuse approach to history and historical evil, which are smothered in feelgood tragi-sentimental slush. Peter Bradshaw. A frank and adventurous portrayal of love in the margins. Matthew Thrift. The movie lacks the nerve to treat death as anything more menacing than the tooth fairy.
It's a steal
Wesley Morris. Markus Zusak's enormously successful young-adult novel seems to have been adapted as a movie for middle-aged children. David Denby. Opening with a sweeping shot of a train racing on snow-covered tracks, a title card reads 'Germany, February '. This kind of vagueness sets up a film that brushes past details in favour of a broad-strokes Nazi movie for the whole family.
Di Golding. The film is nothing more than a cliche, trying to introduce the subject of war to younger viewers without offering anything of interest to older ones. Alistair Ryder. The film has essentially been commissioned on the say-so of pinot-guzzling, chick-lit-licking chocoholics, and it shows.
Boy, it's dull and pointless. Camilla Long. While it may not be suitable for young children, The Book Thief may be one of the best films for families that will play through the holiday season. Josh Terry. It's probably a little too modest for its potential Oscar goals, but it's a fine film nonetheless.
Sarah Marrs. The Book Thief manages to capture the horror of war and the tension of life in the Hubermann household, and there are moments that will shock those not familiar with the story. Francesca Rudkin. Top Box Office. More Top Movies Trailers. Certified Fresh Picks.

Movie Info Based on the beloved international bestselling book, The Book Thief tells the story of an extraordinary, spirited young girl sent to live with a foster family in WWII Germany.
Intrigued by the only book she brought with her, she begins collecting books as she finds them. With the help of her new parents and a secret guest under the stairs, she learns to read and creates a magical world that inspires them all.
Brian Percival. One of the boys, Franz Deutscher, challenges her to read just one word to which Liesel responds by beating him up. She impresses Rudy, and they become fast friends.
When Hans, her foster father, realizes that Liesel cannot read, he begins to teach her, using the book that she took from the graveside, and a giant chalkboard. Liesel becomes captivated with reading anything she can. Liesel and Rudy become members of the Hitler Youth movement. While at a Nazi book burning ceremony, Liesel and Rudy are harassed by Franz into throwing books onto the bonfire, but Liesel is upset to see the books being burned.
When the bonfire ends and everyone leaves, Liesel is still there and she grabs a book that has been only singed. She is seen by Ilsa Hermann, wife of the Burgermeister mayor. When Rosa asks Liesel to take the laundry to the mayor's spacious, gated house, she realizes that the woman who saw her taking the book is the mayor's wife. Instead, Ilsa takes her into their library and tells Liesel she can come by anytime and read as much as she'd like. One day Liesel is found reading by the mayor, who not only puts a stop to her visits but dismisses Rosa as their laundress.
During Kristallnacht , Max Vandenburg and his mother, who are Jewish, are told by a friend that only one of them can escape, and Max's mother forces him to go. Max initially stays in Liesel's room while recovering from his trip, and they begin to become friends over their mutual hatred of Hitler.
World War II begins, initially making most of the children in Liesel's neighborhood very happy. Max is moved to the basement so that he can move around more, but it is cold and he becomes dangerously ill. Liesel helps him recover by reading to him at every spare moment books "borrowed" from the mayor's library. One day while "borrowing" a book from the mayor's home, Liesel is followed by Rudy. He discovers the secret of Max, whose name he reads on a journal Max gave to Liesel for Christmas.
Rudy guesses that her family is hiding someone, and he swears to never tell anyone. Franz overhears Rudy's last words and violently pushes Rudy to reveal the secret. Rudy throws the journal into the river to keep it from Franz. After Franz leaves, Rudy plunges into the icy river to rescue the journal, and Liesel realizes that she can truly trust him.
Soon, a local party member comes by to check the Hubermanns' basement, and they have to hide Max. While working, Hans sees a neighbor and friend named Lehman being taken away by the police because he is a Jew. Hans tries to intervene, telling the officer that Lehman is a good man, but Hans's name is taken by the soldiers and he is thrown to the ground.
Hans realizes what a mistake he has made, since this has made his family visible. He tells the family, and Max realises he must leave in order to protect them. Hans then receives a telegram that he has been conscripted into the army and must leave immediately. On the way home from school, Liesel believes she has seen Max in a line of Jews being forcibly marched through town, and she begins screaming his name, running through the line.
She is thrown to the sidewalk twice by German soldiers and finally gives up when Rosa picks her up and takes her home.
Hans returns home after being injured, and the family is reunited only for a short time. One night the city is bombed by accident, and the air raid sirens fail to go off. Hans, Rosa, and Rudy's family are killed in the blast.Gotthard Lange as Grave Digger. Have you ever seen a lemon? Levin Liam as Franz Deutscher.
