It's not Zhivago. The big picture is drawn a little too hastily for that. But it is a rousing tale with political pertinence, given the current state of relations between Russia and the Ukraine.

In reality, more than seven million people likely died on Stalin's orders. (The final numbers remain unknown.) Don't they deserve a better epitaph than this?

While "Bitter Harvest" will undoubtedly serve to raise awareness, there can be no doubt that the events deserve a more compelling and responsible treatment than this.

The film's use of English-speaking actors, digital cinematography, and simple sets gives it all a cheap, made-for-cable movie feel.

This is a story of villainous oppression, unfortunately told with oppressive earnestness.

The story of the Holodomor is an important one, but Bitter Harvest plasters over the dark history with all manner of movie shortcuts.

The millions who died during this real-life tragedy deserve a stronger memorial than this one.

It seems like Mendeluk and his writer Richard Bachynsky Hoover were striving for something sweeping and old-fashioned, but the end result is claustrophobic and comically out-of-touch.

Almost inevitably, approaching the Holodomor via a standard-length dramatic feature risks reducing the cataclysm's enormity to a trivializing size and emotional impact.

Given the scope of the early-1930s atrocity, the most shocking thing about director George Mendeluk's new dramatization is how utterly devoid of emotional impact it is.
