What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime that her father committed decades earlier.

“Never Look Away makes an eloquent case for art as an expression of hope, a way of searching for meaning in chaos.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“… a cohesively integrated collage of many genres (history, war, crime, medical drama with romance and spectacle), is also a feast of fine acting and magnificent visuals.” – Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
