Set between the two World Wars and based on true historical events, BITTER HARVEST conveys the untold story of the Holodomor, the genocidal famine engineered by the tyrant Joseph Stalin. The film displays a powerful tale of love, honour, rebellion and survival at a time when Ukraine was forced to adjust to the horrifying territorial ambitions of the burgeoning Soviet Union.
Roger EbertFull Review Average Although its title recalls "Angry Harvest," a brilliant Holocaust film, "Bitter Harvest" resembles no estimable European or American movie on such subjects as much as it does a lot of sub-par and instantly forgotten video attempts to plumb historical abominations.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average The film is an awkward mix of swashbuckling love story and polemic, with the battle lines between the Soviet government and the Ukraine painted in very broad strokes. ...the film itself indulges in too much romantic fantasy, which ultimately distracts from its noble goal of honoring the victims of the Holodomor and holding accountable those responsible for it.
