Time Out says
So, when the Nazis send in brutal Ukrainian special forces to exterminate Lvov’s Jews, Socha (Robert Wieckiewicz, spot-on throughout), a sewer inspector with a pragmatic sideline in burglary, at first stands idly by. Indeed, when desperate Jewish fugitives seek refuge in the sewers, he extorts a fee from them to keep it secret. Their horrendous living conditions in turn do little to heal the class divisions limiting their unity. All of this is grimly believable, so that when the green shoots of decency eventually spring up, they do so in a way that is far from hackneyed, slightly mysterious, and thus all the more affecting. Convincing in its detail, nail-chewing in its mounting suspense, ‘In Darkness’ is illuminating, provocative and bracingly unsentimental. It positively clamours for your attention.
